A 24-year-old man was dragged more than a hundred feet and killed Monday by a car, and the motorist backed up to dislodge the body before speeding away.
Los Angeles Police said it just after midnight on Cesar E. Chavez at Chicago avenues, where the pedestrian crossed Chavez from the north and dragged underneath the vehicle for more than 100 feet.
The man’s body was dislodged after the driver drove into a driveway behind a business on Chicago Avenue. The driver then backed out of the driveway and fled northbound on Chicago.
The man was suffering from multiple blunt trauma injuries, and rushed to County-USC Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 12:41 a.m.
The driver’s vehicle may have sustained damage to the left front and undercarriage.
Central Traffic Division detectives asked anyone with any information regarding the hit-and-run fatality to call them at (213) 833-3713.
