When we are up and out of the house early, we want to get started on the day. We may be up early enough to see the sunrise, go for a jog, and simply start being productive before anyone is awake. When a careless driver kills a pedestrian and then drives off, that is an untold tragedy for all of their loved ones. At the Law Offices of Howard Kornberg, our Los Angeles pedestrian accident lawyer want to discuss a recent pedestrian accident in Los Angeles that ended in a fatality.
WHAT HAPPENED IN THIS LOS ANGELES PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT?
In December 2020, Lorena Ponce was near Roscoe Boulevard and Lurline Avenue around 5:00 AM. She was found on the street with injuries consistent with being struck by a vehicle.
Ponce was a mother of four and had recently lost her job. The vehicle in question was possibly a light-colored Chevy Tahoe and a reward of $50,000 who provide information that leads to the arrest.
We do not know for sure what happened on that street corner, but the driver simply abandoned Ponce, leaving her to pass away alone on the corner. The driver even neglected to call for medical assistance, which may have saved her life.
Pedestrian accidents are the most injury-causing type of accident because there is always a lack of protection. A pedestrian is the most vulnerable person and most likely to suffer the most harm.
