Krikor Kassabian, 44, was struck by a car just after midnight on Oct. 1 in the area of Chevy Chase Drive and Glenoaks Boulevard, right outside his home. The car that hit him did not stop, and the driver did not try to help him.
Kassabian was right outside his home when he was struck, and his wife heard the collision and ran out to help him, his sister Lisa Kassabian said. Her brother, who remains hospitalized in the ICU in critical condition, was severely injured – his right arm was severed at the shoulder, both his legs were shattered, and his spine was fractured and dislocated. He has undergone three surgeries in 13 days and has many more surgeries in his future, she said.READ MORE: Newsom, Buttigieg Announce Multi-Billion Loan Agreement To Improve Shipping Infrastructure At Ports Of LA, Long Beach
