Police are seeking a hit-and-run driver who struck and killed a woman in a Redondo Beach crosswalk on Saturday night. The fatal collision took place about 9:05 p.m. in the 1600 block of Aviation Boulevard, at Grant Avenue, Redondo Beach Police Department Lt. Shawn Freeman said in a written statement. A woman was walking east across Aviation Boulevard, within a crosswalk, when she was struck by a southbound vehicle, Freeman said. “The driver of the vehicle that collided with the pedestrian did not stop after the collision, driving away southbound on Aviation Boulevard,” the lieutenant said.
