A 62-year-old woman lost her life when crossing the street in West Adams last night. Annette Marie Carter was struck by a car at Normandie Avenue and Adams Boulevard around 11 p.m. The driver, apparently in a black Toyota Corolla, fled the scene northbound on Normandie, according to the LAPD. "Hit and run killers pose a grave menace to South L.A. residents, “said Earl Ofari Hutchinson, President of L.A. Urban Policy Roundtable, in a statement urging the D.A. to toughen prosecutions of hit and run drivers.”A vigorous prosecution of hit and run killers will send the strong message that hit and run driving that result in death is murder and the penalties will be severe.” Detectives believe there may be front end damage to the car. Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call detectives at (323) 290-6063 or 1-877-LAPD-24-7 during after hours.
