LOS ANGELES, CA (September 1, 2022) – Luis Lopez was run over by a hit-and-run driver after he fell off the scooter he was riding on Saturday in Los Angeles. The August 27 crash occurred in the Boyle Heights area, in the vicinity of Boulder Street and Fickett Street.

The time was roughly 8:55 p.m., Los Angeles Police said.

Reports say authorities made public a video of the incident that was recorded by a surveillance camera. According to authorities, Lopez was riding a scooter and lost his balance.

He tumbled to the roadway and the fall knocked him out.

While he was unconscious, authorities allege, a vehicle–described as a Ford Econoline van–which had been traveling on Fickett Avenue and heading north, ran over Lopez.

The vehicle dragged Lopez roughly 25 feet before Lopez came free of the vehicle.

According to Juan Campos, who is a detective, the driver seems to stop after running over Lopez, as the vehicle’s brake lights can be seen. Authorities believe the driver saw he ran over a person in the road.

The driver fled the crash site without helping the victim.

Responders transported Lopez to the hospital. He suffered injuries that were described as serious, including broken ribs, internal bleeding, and a fractured skull.

Investigators are searching for the suspect hit-and-run driver, and the van involved in the crash.

If anyone has information about the incident, the person can call Detective Campos. The number is 213-833-3713.
