By Sam Catanzaro

Los Angeles police are investigating a hit and run incident that occurred on Wilshire Boulevard near the Santa Monica border.

The incident, which occurred on April 29, was announced by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) West Traffic Division on Tuesday, May 11.

According to the LAPD, the incident happened around 10:30 p.m. on Wilshire Boulevard near Bundy Drive when a vehicle struck a pedestrian then fled the scene westbound on Wilshire Boulevard. The LAPD says that the suspect vehicle–described as a dark-colored late model small SUV wagon or minivan–should have “noticeable” front grill damage.

The driver is wanted by the LAPD for a hit and run felony.

A video clip posted on Twitter by Santa Monica Problems shows incident unfold, beginning with the victim yelling at a cameraperson for “unknown reasons” before being hit.

“You will reap what you sow. You and the whole building will be responsible. This entire building is ground zero. Say goodbye to your family. Say goodbye to your children. Say goodbye to….” said the victim before getting hit.

The LAPD did not announce whether or not the victim survived and could not immediately be reached for comment. The Los Angeles Fire Department says it transported the victim to a local hospital but did not know if the victim survived.

Anybody with information is asked to contact LAPD Detective Dickson at (213) 473-0234.
