The Los Angeles Police Department is still trying to locate two of three vehicles and their drivers behind the fatal hit-and-run incident in 2001. A 60-year-old woman was the unfortunate casualty at that time with the two vehicles not pulling over after hitting the old lady.

It was on Feb. 26, 2001, when the 60-year-old, whose identity has yet to be released, was struck by a Toyota Camry while using a designated crosswalk near Glenoaks Boulevard and Vinedale Avenue according to an official press release from the LAPD.

From there, the woman was thrown to the roadway where two other vehicles struck her. The owner of the Toyota Camry pulled over but the two other vehicles sped away. One was described as a dark gray Sports Utility Vehicle and another a dark SUV. The second and third vehicles did not stop, render aid and identify themselves as required by California law.

Drivers involved in a collision should pull over and stop once it is safe for them to do so. They are also responsible for notifying emergency services and remain at the scene for proper identification.

The unnamed old woman was pronounced dead when the LA Fire Department paramedics arrived at the scene. Authorities are now seeking help from anyone who may have led to the other vehicles involved in the incident.

Anyone who may have information on the case is encouraged to contact Valley Traffic Division investigator Officer Garcia at (818) 644-8117. For non-business hours, calls can be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247). For those who wish to stay anonymous, they can call the LA Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477) or log on to www.lacrimestoppers.org.

Aside from that, the Hit and Run Reward Program Trust Fund is offering a reward of $50,000 to people who can provide information on the identities of the drivers of the other two vehicles, apprehension and conviction or resolution.
