A woman on a skateboard was killed Thursday morning in a hit-and-run crash in Playa Del Rey.

Officers responded to the intersection of Pershing Drive and Manchester Avenue about 1:15 a.m., when they located the victim, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The woman had walked out of a nearby business and was showing a friend her skateboard when she went into the street and was struck in the No. 2 lane of Pershing Drive by a vehicle traveling northbound, Capt. Brian Wendling told reporters at the scene.

Wendling also urged the driver to surrender.

“We used to call them traffic accidents for a reason and it doesn’t become a crime at that point,” Wendling said. “When you flee the scene like that, it becomes a felony crime. There’s no reason to flee the scene.”

The suspect vehicle was described as a dark sedan. A description of
the driver was not immediately available.

The age and name of the victim were not disclosed.
