Los Angeles police are saying that the accident took place around 3:30 a.m. The circumstances of the accident remain unknown at this point.

Liability In Los Angeles Pedestrian Accidents
Los Angeles is well known for its high rate of pedestrian accidents. Along with San Diego and the Bay Area, there is a higher concentration of dangerous roads than in most other parts of California. Consider, for example, the following map which shows the top 5 intersections for hit-and-run car accidents in Los Angeles.
Leaving the scene of an accident that causes great bodily injury is a felony in California. A driver will most likely be subject to criminal as well as civil liability. If the operator of a van was working during the time of the accident the company that hired them could potentially face liability. For most accidents that happen at intersections, traffic footage will help police officers track down the negligent driver. Even if a car accident does not happen exactly at an intersection, footage can still be used to help track down a vehicle following an accident. It’s always a good idea to seek the legal counsel of an experienced wrongful death attorney if someone that you love has been involved in a car accident.
