Hit-and-Run driver doesn’t stop as he hits woman, dragging her a block.

A woman was killed by a hit-and-run motorist as she was pushing a cart across the street in Avalon Gardens of South Los Angeles.

The accident occurred on Saturday at 7:30pm near Avalon Boulevard. The car was gray, either a Toyota Corolla, Camry or Tercel with a black hood.

The woman was caught on the roof of the car and dragged almost a block before being thrown off, police said. The driver never stopped. Leaving the scene of an accident that injures a person is a felony.

The woman was taken to California Hosptial Medical Center where she died from severe injuries.

Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the woman and locating the driver. Anyone with any information regarding the traffic accident was asked to call (877) 529-3855.
