Boy Seriously Injured in South Los Angeles Crash on 42nd Street

South Los Angeles, California – A boy suffered major injuries in a South LA crash involving a hit-and-run driver on Wednesday afternoon, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

An 11-year-old boy was running towards an ice cream truck when he was struck by a Chevy Tahoe that was reportedly stolen.

The accident occurred on 42nd Street, just east of McKinley Avenue.

The driver of the Chevy stopped momentarily to check on the victim then got back in the vehicle and drove off.

The victim was hospitalized with severe injuries.

Authorities said the suspect was operating a gray or beige 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe with a California license plate number 6SEZ288. The vehicle had been reported stolen on Sunday.

Anyone with information on the hit-and-run is urged to call the Central Traffic Division detectives at (213) 833-3713 or email 31161@lapd.online or the Central Traffic Division watch commander at (213) 833-3746.

Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

“Usually, clients hire me immediately after their first consultation because they quickly figure out that I will treat them like family. I lift a weight off their shoulders immediately. That is my job. We simply leave no stone unturned – period. We go after everyone and everything. There is no other way to ensure justice,” Mr. Khodaverdian states.

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. We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
