Around 7:30 p.m. Sunday night, a 22-year-old female California State University Northridge student was hit and launched 40 feet from a crosswalk she was walking across. She suffered severe injuries and is listed in critical condition. The LAPD has few clues about the incident, which took place at Reseda Boulevard and Superior Street near campus. What they do know is that the suspect car is possibly a Toyota or Lexus traveling northbound. If anyone knows any information they can report it here.

From the LAPD: "Anyone with information about this incident or witnesses to the traffic collision are asked to contact Valley Traffic Division Detectives at (818) 644-8034 or (818) 644-8035. After-hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247). Callers may also text "CRIMES" with a cell phone or log on to and click on Web Tips. When using a cell phone, messages should always begin with "LAPD." All calls and contacts are anonymous."
