One person was killed and another critically injured in a hit-and-run crash early Saturday (January 14, 2017) morning in Leimert Park, officials said.
The collision occurred at 3:36 a.m. at Arlington Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, according to police.
One person was extricated from a vehicle and rushed to a hospital, and the other occupant was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The investigation is ongoing, Preciado said. The names of the victims have not been released.

Any incident resulting in severe injuries and fatalities is a difficult time for families and friends of victims.  Often times, there is little, if any, information regarding the facts and circumstances of a catastrophic event.  It becomes frustrating for family and friends who need information.
