The LAPD are looking for the driver of a red Honda Civic or Prelude that struck a man who was walking southbound in the east crosswalk of Carondelet Street at about 8:35 p.m. on Tuesday, November 30th.The victim, 32-year-old Felix Gonzalez, was struck first by the Honda, and, after that driver fled the scene, was subsequently struck by two additional unidentified vehicles. Both unidentified drivers also left the scene of the traffic accident. Gonzalez suffered extensive blunt force trauma injuries and Paramedics rushed him to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.

Anyone with information about the driver of the Honda, or the other two vehicles, should contact the LAPD.
