We received an e-mail from an anonymous reader asking about a hit and run in Tujunga Village over the weekend. The reader came upon the scene just after it happened and wrote us to see if we could confirm or deny any of the info they heard from other onlookers. A casual skim of the papers turns up nothing, anyone have any info? This is what we’ve got:
“Tonight, Sunday night at around 8:30pm-8:45pm there was a hit and run on Tujunga right in front of Vitello’s restaurant. A mother, her daughter and their two dogs were crossing the street at a well marked crosswalk (that people wiz through all the time anyway!) and they were struck by a car. The crowd was telling me that the mother, daughter and one of the dogs died on the scene and the smaller dog ran off and is on the loose. That’s all I know and it is hearsay, I didn’t verify any of this information with the police but everyone was so shook up I believe it to be true. “
Anyone in the area know any more details on this?
UPDATE: See the comments for more information as to where this happened, and see this new post for security camera images which caught the people on film seconds before the accident.
