A 22-year-old Los Angeles man is dead after he was hit by two different vehicles in a span of 11 seconds and both drivers fled the scene. Authorities are investigating the death of Thomas Price, who was an aspiring firefighter and graduate of Los Angeles Valley College.
He was struck around 2:15 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2 while he was crossing an intersection, and the driver fled the scene.
Police originally believed only one car was involved, but a surveillance video that was uncovered this week reveals that a second driver hit him and also fled the scene.
Price was dragged about 30 feet by the first vehicle, and then 11 seconds later, the second vehicle ran him over.
His mother April, a single parent, says she wants closure and asked the drivers who ran over her son to come forward, KTLA reported.
‘Any leads at all… just do the right thing,’ she said. ‘My family needs closure, and to have two people have run him over like an animal in the street is deeply disturbing.’
