A hit-and-run car accident in Los Angeles left a 3-year-old trick-or-treater with critical head injuries the night of October 31, 2010. The Los Angeles Daily News reports that the girl was walking with her aunt at the intersection of 77th Street and Avalon Boulevard in the Florence area of south Los Angeles when a red Toyota hit them. The girl sustained severe head trauma, but is expected to survive. Her aunt suffered injuries to her hand. The hit-and-run driver is still at large.
I hope the little girl has not suffered catastrophic injuries in this pedestrian accident. I wish both the injured victims the very best for a speedy and complete recovery. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Leaving the Scene of a Car Accident
I certainly hope that this dangerous driver is apprehended and brought to justice. This was a driver who ran down a little girl out trick or treating on Halloween night and then left her with major head injuries on the roadway. Despicable! Hit-and-run is an inhumane, heartless act and it is against California Vehicle Code Section 20001 (a).
