The SUV driver, who sustained injuries as well, may be charged with murder, according to the LAPD’s South Traffic Division, which verified that alcohol played a role in the collision.

The neighbourhood’s residents have asked for a stoplight installed at the intersection because they believe accidents occur frequently. Anyone with information is encouraged to get in touch with Crime Stoppers or the South Traffic Division, as police are actively looking for leads.
