 Homeless Men Hospitalized Hit-and-Run Crash 17th Street in Downtown L.A.2 Men Critically Injured in Downtown 17th Street Hit-and-run Crash

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (Oct. 30, 2018) — Derrick Harris, 52, and Channon Milner, 47, have been identified as the two homeless men who were critically injured Saturday night in a hit-and-run collision on 17th Street in downtown Los Angeles.

Now police are searching for the driver who fled the scene of the crash, near Naomi Avenue, KTLA News reports.

The crash took place about 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27th.

A gray and tan, older-model Chevrolet Tahoe pickup truck struck two men who were at homeless encampments that were located along East 17th Street.

Police are investigating why the pickup truck apparently drove up onto the sidewalk before hitting the first victim and then the second. Prior to the collision, one of the men was working on a bicycle and the other fixing a crate.

The Los Angeles Police Department believes the collision may have been intentional.

Witnesses may contact local law enforcement and could be eligible for a $25,000 reward.

17th Street Hit-and-run Crash Investigation

Police are reviewing the evidence and any witness statements to determine fault.  It’s unknown at this time what factors led to the crash. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicles such as point of impact, final resting positions of the vehicles, skid marks, and gouge marks.

We offer our prayers to the injured men in hopes of a full recovery.

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.
