HOLLYWOOD HILLS—A woman was struck and killed on Friday, September 27 by a driver who fled the scene, according to police.

The accident occurred around 3:30 a.m. in the 6700 block of Santa Monica Boulevard, just east of Highland. The woman was announced dead at the scene.

Police are looking for an early model white Toyota or a light blue Ford Thunderbird, according to reports.

The hit-and-run accident happened the same day that Councilman Joe Buscaino proposed a standing reward of $50,000 for information that could lead to the arrest and conviction of drivers involved in deadly hit-and-runs. Buscaino is proposing the reward at the city council meeting.

“I am doing my best to change a culture in Los Angeles where 30 people get killed every year by drivers who leave the scene,” said Buscaino on his Facebook page in reference to the reward. “It’s not moral,” he added.

The accident is currently under investigation and details about the victim have not yet been released.
