Hit-and-Run Kills Pedestrian on Lincoln

Shortly before 1am this evening, a pedestrian walking in the northern east-west crosswalk at Lincoln and Venice Blvd. was struck and killed by an automobile.

Death in Venice 9/20/13

LAPD officers on the scene were not aware of the vehicle driver being in police custody and did not have a victim description to release.

The intersection of Lincoln and Venice will most likely be closed for a few hours.

Update: The victim was apparently a homeless man, and this accident was a “hit and run”. LAPD is looking for what witnesses described as a black or grey compact sedan. The vehicle should have damage on the front. Call 800-222-8477 if you have any information!

Update 2: NBC News says that LAPD is looking for a black Prius that should have front end damage.

Update 3: NBC Reports: An anonymous tip sent via the Internet led to the arrest of the woman who allegedly fatally struck a man with her car in Venice Friday morning and fled the scene.

Kara Kiehle, 33, of Venice, was arrested at her home about 3:20 p.m. Friday and booked on charges of felony hit-and-run, according to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Inmate Information Center. She is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.
