LOS ANGELES, CA (April 26, 2021) – A hit-and-run crash severely injured a teenage pedestrian at Prospect Avenue and Talmadge Street in Los Feliz.

According to the KTLA News and CBS Los Angeles, the accident occurred last week on Wednesday night. Officers reported the collision on April 21 at around 11:25 p.m.

The incident happened when 15-year-old boy was crossing southbound on Prospect Avenue at the intersection with Talmadge Street in Los Feliz. At the same time, a van was going east on Prospect.

Police said for an unknown reason, the driver of the van struck the teen. The victim ended up thrown more than 20 feet into the air upon impact and landed across the street.
