On Christmas Day, December 25, 2017, a woman was left to die after she was involved in a hit-and-run collision with another driver in the Crenshaw/Baldwin Hills neighborhood of southern California. The crash occurred around 9:00 p.m. on the S. Crenshaw Boulevard. The woman, in her late 50s, was hit by a black four-door Nissan Murano and quickly fled without rendering any aid – like calling an ambulance – to the victim. A witness who wished to remain anonymous, reported hearing a friend of the victim frantically shout for help, and attempting to console the dying woman. The witness heard her friend say, “I’m not going to let you go.” Once the ambulance arrived, they drove her to a local hospital, where the victim later died. The whereabouts nor the identity of the Nissan Murano are currently unknown, and officials do not yet have a license plate number for the vehicle. They are currently searching for any nearby surveillance video for the perpetrator.
