Ronald Waldamar Jo-Jlux Sought after Deadly Westlake Pedestrian Crash on Miramar Street at Union Avenue

Westlake, California – The authorities are looking for a suspect they believe was involved in a deadly Westlake hit-and-run crash that occurred on Miramar Street at Union Avenue on November 23.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the victim, Jeun Chu Ham, 76, was trying to cross the street just before 6 a.m. when she was hit by a Toyota Corolla that was turning left onto Miramar Street.

The driver dragged Ham nearly 15 feet.

Ham sustained life-threatening injuries and was rushed to a hospital, where she was pronounced deceased on Monday night.

The driver fled the scene after the accident.

Police on Thursday named Ronald Waldamar Jo-Jlux, 26, as a suspect in the incident. He is believed to have been operating a 4-door tan or a gold 2003 to 2008 Toyota Corolla that hit the pedestrian.

The City of Los Angeles offers a reward of up to $50,000 for anyone who can provide information that could lead to the arrest and conviction of a suspect who has been involved in a deadly hit-and run.

The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating the collision.

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.”
