Pico Rivera, California (January 12, 2020) – A man has been arrested following a deadly hit-and-run pedestrian accident that killed a 15-year-old boy in Pico Rivera on Friday afternoon.

The accident happened at about 3 p.m. January 10, at the intersection of Paramount Boulevard and Slauson Avenue, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The boy and three other pedestrians were walking in a crosswalk when the boy was hit by a southbound truck.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said the boy sustained serious injuries and was transported to a local hospital where he died while undergoing treatment.

The motorist fled the scene but was later located by Whittier Police Department’s officers.

No other information was provided.

An investigation into the accident is ongoing.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
