Los Angeles Pedestrian Killed Martin Luther King Boulevard
Monday, July 17, Los Angeles Pedestrian Accident Halldale and Martin Luther King
LOS ANGELES (July 18, 2017)-According to the Los Angeles Police Department, a fatal pedestrian versus auto collision was reported Monday night at the cross streets of Halldale Avenue and Martin Luther King Boulevard.
The incident took place just before 10:00 p.m. between a black small sedan and a pedestrian.
Video footage showed a pedestrian lying in the middle of the road with fatal injuries as a tarp was rested over the unidentified victim’s body.
Police officials set up an E-Z Up as well directly over the victim’s body right outside of TUT Market.
The footage went back and showed the sedan parallel parked against the curb with a large crack in the windshield.
The driver of the sedan may have been an African American woman who seemed to be interviewing with several police officials on the sidewalk.
No details have been released regarding what exactly transpired leading up to the collision as LAPD continues their investigation.
Based on this news report, it appears that the driver of the vehicle struck the victim at or near the intersection. There are still several unanswered questions here. Was the driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was the driver negligent in any other way? Was the victim in or outside the means of a marked crosswalk? Was the victim under the influence? We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred here and why.
