Pedestrian accidents often lead to devastating injuries. Unfortunately, the Los Angeles area is no stranger to pedestrian crashes, particularly hit-and-run incidents. Despite the lofty “Vision Zero” goal outlined in 2015, the number of pedestrian incidents has increased. At JML Law, our skilled and experienced team is ready to help when you need a Los Angeles pedestrian accident lawyer. Today, we want to discuss a recent hit-and-run involving a rental Tesla vehicle and what police know about the suspect so far.

What happened in this hit-and-run with a Tesla?

A crash that occurred on Nov 21. Around Olympic Boulevard and Lake Street is under investigation by the LAPD. At around 10:45 that evening, the driver of a rental Tesla struck a 34-year-old man and left him in critical condition.

Police have identified the victim as Emilio Perez. They say he was pushing a cart across the street when he was struck by a light-colored Tesla that police say may be a Model 3. After the collision, the driver of the Tesla fled the scene.

Police say that they believe the Tesla has left two blocks from the crash site about an hour later with the help of an accomplice. Video shows what police describe as a woman in a hoodie carrying a car cover. The video shows the woman trying to cover damage to Tesla.

As of this writing, no arrests have been made. Police are seeking both the driver of the Tesla and anyone who is trying to help the hit-and-run driver escape prosecution.
