An electric scooter rider injured after being hit by a vehicle in downtown Los Angeles (Los Angeles, CA)

On Wednesday, a woman riding a rental electric scooter suffered injuries after being hit by a vehicle in downtown Los Angeles.

The two-vehicle accident took place shortly after 1 p.m. The preliminary investigation indicated that the 30-year-old woman riding a scooter was traveling westbound on 4th Street, against a one-way road, just past Main Street. At the same time, a 2020 Chevy Spark was heading eastbound on 4th Street from Spring Street when the driver collided head-on with the scooter rider.

The force of the crash sent the woman flying and she landed headfirst onto the sidewalk. Reports further added that the Chevy crashed into a parked vehicle after hitting the woman. The driver came out of the Chevy, which was reportedly stolen and ran on foot without stopping to render aid.

The suspect was last seen heading northbound on Spring Street from 4th Street.  On arrival, medics rushed the woman to a local hospital for treatment. She was admitted into the intensive care unit with major injuries, but was listed in stable condition as of Wednesday night and is expected to survive.

The man is described as a Hispanic, around 20 to 25 years old, with black hair, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 150 to 175 pounds. According to eyewitnesses, the suspect was wearing gray pants with a possible camouflage pattern, and had a tattoo on the right side of his chest with unknown writing.

The incident remains under active review.
