LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A car wash was held Sunday near the location where an 18-year-old disabled teen was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver last week.

Miguel Angel Mendez, 18, was crossing Broadway Avenue just south of Century Boulevard in Watts when he was struck by a hit-and-run driver believed to be in a green-colored minivan, possibly a Town & Country.

The teen — a special needs student at Benjamin Banneker Special Ed Center — apparently was crossing the street to get a snack at a Burger King near his home.

The car wash was held today to help the family with funeral expenses.

A family member set up an account at Bank of America (account # 122-000-661) if anyone in the public would like to donate.
