The Los Angeles Police Department is seeking the public’s help to identify a 10-year-old boy riding a rental scooter who was struck by a vehicle in Koreatown Thursday and critically injured.
Paramedics from the Los Angeles Fire Department were called at 5 p.m. to the intersection of Vermont Avenue and Seventh Street regarding a traffic collision, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
He was taken to a hospital, where he remains in critical condition.
The boy did not have any identification. There were no fingerprints on file to help identify him. Police are seeking the public’s help to identify him so proper notification can be made to his parents or a legal guardian.
A review of the boy’s phone showed Cyrillic alphabet writing, indicating he is possibly of Russian descent, police said.
The driver of the vehicle remained at scene and police said at this time there appears to be no criminal negligence involved.
Anyone with information about this crash was asked to call the West Traffic Division watch commander at 213 473-0222. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be made to 877-527-3247.
