Security footage caught the hit and run

In the early evening hours of December 28th, a 14-year-old and her 3-year-old niece were crossing Main Street near 43rd Street in South L.A. when they were struck by a car. The driver of the vehicle, only described as a female, just kept on driving, leaving the two children in the street with serious injuries.

So far, police have not been able to identify the suspect. In hopes of enticing the public to come forward, Jan Perry late last month secured a reward of up to $75,000 for anyone with information leading to the identification and apprehension of the suspect.
