A 30-year-old motorist was arrested on suspicion of felony hit-and-run on suspicion of fatally placing a pedestrian in Winnetka and fleeing the scene, authorities mentioned Sunday.
It was not identified why Gevorg George Gevorgyan returned to the crash location, the place he was ultimately arrested, the Los Angeles Police Division’s Media Relations Division mentioned.
The crash was reported at 9:34 p.m. Saturday at 7600 Winnetka Ave., at Saticoy Avenue, in keeping with Los Angeles Fireplace Division spokesman Brian Humphrey.
The sufferer, who died on the scene, was described by the Los Angeles County coroner’s workplace as a person in his 40s. His title was withheld pending notification of household.
Gevorgyan was driving northbound on Winnetka when he struck the pedestrian, who was strolling within the roadway, police mentioned. Police mentioned he stopped the car momentarily after the crash earlier than fleeing the scene — then later returned to the placement.
