Father Killed in Culver City Hit-and Run Crash

A father is dead on Saturday after a teenage girl fled police in a stolen auto and ran a red light before crashing into a man’s vehicle, according to the Culver City Police Department.

The crash was reported at about 11 a.m. on Washington Boulevard at La Cienega Boulevard, according to police. A father and his 8-year-old son were inside that sedan.

As of 6 p.m. the intersection was still closed, and two people from the suspect’s vehicle remained in the hospital, Dunlap said.

The vehicle was reported missing out of Santa Monica but authorities do not yet know if the auto was from a dealership or personal ownership.

A man was killed and his 8-year-old son injured in Culver City on Saturday when the driver of a stolen auto ran a red light while trying to evade police and plowed into another vehicle at a major intersection.

The underage driver of the vehicle, which police say was stolen, fled the scene on foot, as did three other occupants. Another person in the victim’s auto was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said. All four suspects were quickly taken into custody and transported to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries sustained in the accident.

Washington Boulevard was closed in both directions between La Cienega Boulevard and Comey Avenue for the investigation, they said.
