Man dead after getting run over by 3 hit-and-run drivers

LOS ANGELES (ANN): A 50-year-old man died in California, USA, after getting run over by three separate drivers who all fled the scene.

Jose Fuentes was first hit by a still unknown motorcycle driver in a South Los Angeles neighborhood yesterday evening, Nov. 25, as per ABC-owned KABC-TV on the same day.

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) disclosed that Fuentes was hit while crossing the road by a dark-colored motorcycle driven by a man.

After the motorcyclist fled, Fuentes was left lying on the road as none of the other drivers stopped to help him, according to the report.

After a few seconds, he was run over by a white sedan, which also fled the scene immediately. Both collisions were caught by security cameras, ABC News reported on the same day.

Fuentes was then hit a third time by another vehicle, although authorities did not release its description. Authorities are still looking for the suspects.

“Nobody stopped and helped out Mr. Fuentes as he lied there, ” LAPD detective Ryan Moreno was quoted as saying in a statement to the press.

“The guy on the motorcycle, he kind of went out onto the street, maybe [he could have] stopped to block traffic and prevented even the second or third collision from happening. But he elected to get on his motorcycle and took off and left and fled the scene, ” he said. – Philippine Daily Inquirer/Asia News Network
