Joshua Casillas Pacoima Hit-and-Run Accident at Laurel Canyon and Montague

Joshua Casillas, 7, Severely Injured by Hit-and-Run Driver in Pacoima

PACOIMA (June 6, 2018) – A young pedestrian severely injured after an alleged hit-and-run accident at Laurel Canyon Boulevard and Montague Avenue last month has been identified as Joshua Casillas, according to KTLA.

Police said the 7-year-old boy was crossing the street in the Pacoima neighborhood with his grandfather and other family members when they were struck by a Kia Spectra.

Reports indicated that the Kia initially collided with a Chevy van in the intersection and was then forced toward the pedestrians. The collision occurred on May 15 at around 5:50 p.m.

As per the article, the child suffered severe injuries and had his leg amputated. His grandfather sustained wounds. Both were immediately taken to Northridge Hospital for treatment.

The juvenile is currently receiving treatment at UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital

Meanwhile, the driver of the van who allegedly prompted the crash did not stop to render aid and fled the scene. The suspect was apparently arrested.


We extend our prayers and sincerest thoughts to the victims and their family during such a difficult time. We wish them a swift and full recovery.

In this case, it is evident that the driver of the van will be held responsible for causing the incident that led to the injuries of the innocent child and his grandfather. Regardless of their reasons, leaving the area following a crash is a serious crime and is punishable by law, especially if the collision seriously hurt other individuals.

The family members of Joshua Casillas and his grandfather will have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the suspect.

The claim will include a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
