Pacific Palisades: Anna Soon Ma Arrested after Hit-and-Run Accident
At about 7:55 p.m. on Friday, February 14, 2014, a 28-year-old man was seriously injured in a hit-and-run pedestrian accident in Pacific Palisades. A silver 2010 Toyota Prius struck the man as he traversed Pacific Coast Highway in a marked, flashing pedestrian crosswalk located north of Temescal Canyon Road. Emergency responders airlifted him to a hospital to receive treatment for major trauma. On Monday, authorities arrested the driver of the Prius, 73-year-old Anna Soon Ma, of Fullerton. She was released on Tuesday morning after posting $50,000 bail, reported CBSLA.COM.
Hit-and-run accidents are a serious problem in Los Angeles County. Last year, more than 21,000 hit-and-run crimes occurred in Los Angeles, with more than 1,200 resulting in injury and 41 in death, according to a representative of the Los Angeles Police Department. In 2011, the California Office of Traffic Safety recorded 5,893 fatal and injury collisions in which hit-and-run was a factor. That year, the OTS ranked Los Angeles the 2nd worst in the state for its incidence of such accidents.
After a hit-and-run accident, locating the responsible driver is often crucial to the victim’s ability to obtain compensation for recovery-related expenses, such as for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
