A hit and run accident that killed a Downey man this Monday is still under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department. The department requested today that the public provide help in finding the perpetrator. The man killed in the accident, Federico Porras, was traveling south on Marianna, outside Los Angeles, when he was hit by a car.
A car identified as a black 2006 Nissan Versa struck the man’s vehicle, a 2007 Honda motorcycle, and then fled from the scene, turning the accident into a hit and run. Porras was taken to a hospital but unfortunately died later. Information relevant to this hit and run accident can be called in to the Central Division of LAPD.
