 Abraham Velasco Faces Murder Charges for North Hills Crash on Nordhoff StreetLOS ANGELES, Calif. (Oct. 5, 2021) – Abraham Espinosa Velasco, 29, was arrested on Wednesday following a deadly North Hills crash on West Nordhoff Street.

The young man was arrested Wednesday and booked on suspicion of murder following the fatal hit-and-run crash early Tuesday that killed a woman and badly-injured a man, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

The suspect is being held on $2 million bail, according to the Los Angeles sheriff’s department.

According to the LAPD, the collision happened about 5:20 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 5th. Abraham Velasco was allegedly driving a black 2016 Range Rover and speeding northbound on Hayvenhurst Avenue. Witnesses told authorities he ran a red light before crashing into a 2018 Toyota Camry traveling eastbound on Nordhoff Street.

Next, the Range Rover struck a gray Honda Civic and a white Toyota Tacoma.

Eventually, it came to a stop in the middle of the street.

Police Seek Passenger Who Fled Crash Scene

Paramedics responded and pronounced a 56-year-old woman driving the Honda dead at the scene. The Los Angeles County Sheriff Coroner has not released her name. Meanwhile, paramedics treated the driver of the Toyota Camry  at the scene for complaints of pain.

Abraham Velasco and his male passenger exited the Range Rover and fled on foot. When fire and police officials arrived they were gone.

Police have not located the passenger yet, but they are working to find the man. The passenger is about 6 feet tall and weighs about 190 pounds. At the time of the collision he was wearing a
dark track jacket, blue jeans and black shoes, police said.

Witnesses or anyone with information on the collision may call LAPD Valley Traffic Division Officer Garcia at 818-644-8117 or Detective Barragan at 818-644-8028.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.

You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case.
