Police are seeking information in an early-morning hit-and-run last week that injured a pedestrian at a crosswalk.

Officials released surveillance video of the Jan. 30 incident at the corner of
Lorena Street and 8th Street in Boyle Heights and asked for the public’s help in identifying the driver.

The footage shows a silver sedan turning left onto Lorena Street and straight into the path of the pedestrian, who rolled over the hood and landed in the street. The driver did not stop, and the pedestrian took himself to a hospital to be treated for minor injuries, according to an LAPD statement.

Officials added that the vehicle likely has damage to its hood, and urged anyone with information to call LAPD Central Traffic Division detectives.

A hit-and-run in early January at the corner of Lorena Street and Whittier Boulevard seriously injured a Colombian tourist, while two high-profile crashes along Whittier Boulevard in November killed three people in Boyle Heights.
