CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA (September 30, 2022) – On Wednesday afternoon in the City of Industry, a hit-and-run driver struck and injured a woman and her granddaughter. The September 28 crash occurred at Gemini Street and South Azusa Avenue.
The time was roughly 1:30 p.m., the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department said.
Reports say video from a surveillance camera captured the incident.
A woman and a child exited a bus, according to reports, and walked to where Gemini Street intersects with South Azusa Avenue.
As the pair walked in the crosswalk, a vehicle–which authorities allege was traveling at a fast speed–struck the woman and child.
