Authorities sought public help Friday to find the hit-and-run motorist who badly injured a man crossing a street in the Glassell Park area with his daughter.

The man was struck about 5:15 p.m. Nov. 16, 2018, at San Fernando Road and Hallett Avenue, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

“A father and his young daughter were crossing the street, from the southeast corner to the northeast corner, in a marked crosswalk,” police said.

“As they were approximately 16 feet away from making it across the street, a red four-door vehicle, possibly a Toyota Camry, approached them at a high rate of speed,” police said. “The father realized that the vehicle was not going to stop, and he pushed his daughter out of the vehicle’s path. However, the father was struck by the vehicle, launching him onto the sidewalk.”

The man suffered a broken thigh bone, and his daughter suffered scratches on her face, police said.

The motorist was described as a woman with gray hair, about 60-65 years of age, with a heavy build.

Police released security video and urged anyone with information on the case to call Central Traffic Division detectives at (213) 486-0755; (877) LAPD-247; or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
