(RoyalPatriot.com )- Karen Bass, the newly elected mayor of Los Angeles, stated that one of her daughters was injured in a hit-and-run Thursday morning in Los Angeles.
According to local media, the accident involving two white SUVs occurred at 9:00 a.m. in the West Adams neighborhood, which is around eight miles west of downtown Los Angeles. A Los Angeles Police Department spokesman informed Fox 11 that the second vehicle fled the area shortly after the collision.
Local news reported that authorities stated four men fled the SUV after the collision. Photos from the site revealed that the vehicle’s airbags were deployed.
A Los Angeles Police Department spokesman stated that a vehicle collided with the car Bass’ daughter was driving, then went off the road and approached a residence.
Her daughter remained at the scene of the collision and was treated for her injuries at a nearby hospital.
There have been no arrests reported.
According to Bass, her daughter was not seriously injured in the accident, and she has returned home after getting hospital treatment. Bass stated she was grateful to the first responders and medical personnel who ensured her safety.
According to Bass, the Los Angeles Police Department has initiated an investigation into this incident’s circumstances.
But, the LAPD will not investigate if the suspects are juveniles, according to the directive of the district attorney.
Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon’s policies contribute to a rise in violent crime, as juvenile offenders who once would have been imprisoned now roam the streets freely. The subsequent increase in crime is attributable primarily to Gascon’s anti-jail position toward juvenile criminals.
In 2006, Bass’ daughter, Emilia Bass-Lechuga, and son-in-law, Michael Wright, were killed in a vehicle accident. Bass defeated real estate developer Rick Caruso in a fiercely contested battle for Los Angeles mayor last month.
Emilia and Michael Wright reportedly tied the knot earlier that year after meeting at Loyola Marymount University, where Emilia was scheduled to graduate in December.
Will the new mayor force a change to the “anti-jail” directives?
