Public’s Help Needed To ID Driver In Fatal Hit-And-Run Crash

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Police need the public’s help in identifying the driver of a car involved in a hit-and-run crash that killed a 22-year-old man.

Charles Frazier, of Los Angeles, was fatally injured in the crash on Jan. 11. Frazier was driving a 1986 Camaro south on Normandie Avenue, approaching Vernon, when he was struck from behind by a car, identified as possibly being a Chevrolet Monte Carlo or Impala. The crash sent the Camaro over the double yellow lines and into opposing traffic.

Police say Frazier was ejected from his car. He was taken to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries.

The suspect continued south on Normandie and fled the scene without helping Frazier or identifying himself.

Investigators believe the hit-and-run driver is a black man, 5-feet-11 to 6-foot-1, weighing about 175-180 pounds. He wore a black bandanna, black baseball hat and a black shirt.

The suspect’s car was black or dark in color with large chrome rims.

Anyone with information about the crash can call Investigator K. Yount at (323) 421-2500 or (323) 421-2535.
