West Los Angeles: Pedestrian Razia Shariff Killed In Hit-And-Run Accident
James E. Ballidis
At approximately 9:15 last night, pedestrian Razia Shariff was struck while crossing Centinela Avenue in West Los Angeles. The driver of the unidentified vehicle fled the scene, leaving Shariff to suffer from the blunt force trauma injuries she sustained from the impact. She was transported to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Authorities are investigating this hit-and-run accident, explains a California injury attorney.
Throughout California, pedestrians were involved in 646 of the 3,113 fatal and 12,774 of the 170,496 injury traffic collisions according to the California Highway Patrol’s 2008 Annual Report of Fatal and Injury Traffic Collisions. Pedestrians were involved in 214 of the 667 fatal and 4,985 of the 52,229 injury traffic accidents that year—more than in any other county. Nationwide, the majority of pedestrian accidents occurred in urban areas (72%), at non-intersection locations (76%), in normal weather conditions (89%), and at night (70%), according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Razia Shariff, the pedestrian killed in West Los Angeles last night.
