Who Killed Tyler Keenan?

LAPD seeks public’s help in identifying hit-and-run driver

The Los Angeles Police Department is hoping the public can help investigators identify the hit-and-run driver who killed a pedestrian in Palms last month. The Feb. 26 collision occurred around 1:15 a.m. when a compact SUV headed west on Venice boulevard hit a pedestrian lying in the roadway of Robertson Boulevard, police said in a news release. The victim, who was outside of a crosswalk when he was struck, succumbed to his injuries at a local hospital after the collision.

The driver of the SUV, which might be blue in color, fled the scene and did not stop to help or identify themselves, police said. Video of the suspected vehicle is available on the LAPD’s YouTube channel.

An investigation into the fatal hit-and-run is ongoing. Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact West Traffic Detectives at 213-473-0234. Anonymous tips can be made through Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477 or online at L.A. Crime Stoppers. A reward of up to $50,000 is available to community members that provide information leading to the driver’s identification, apprehension and conviction or resolution through a civil compromise.
