Pedestrian struck, killed on Sunset Blvd.

A woman in her 30s attempting to cross Sunset Blvd. near Hammond Ave. at around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday was struck and killed by vehicle.

The driver then hit a parked car before coming to a stop and cooperating with authorities. No arrests were made.

The woman’s friends were reportedly yelling at her to stop as she walked into oncoming traffic.

β€œShe got hit by a car in front of me,” a witness told KTLA, adding that she was “shot almost a quarter of a block after she got hit, like, boom, hit really hard, flew.”

Not to be rude or insensitive, but jaywalking is common on all streets. California drivers MAY be aware of the “pedestrian has the right of way”, 99% of people simply do not care. MAYBE WeHo should lower the speed limits in City Limits? Lots of speeding and racing all the time, but especially at night, and mainly by visitors to the Sunset Strip and/or Santa Monic Blvd.

If only WEHO had more Rainbow crosswalks, this type of stuff wouldn’t happen…..πŸ˜”

If you’re jaywalking or crossing against a light, the design of the crosswalk doesn’t mean a thing. Get a clue. According to the story, this woman walked right into traffic.

Safety on our streets is one of the simplest things to accomplish. Properly lighted crosswalks mid block in dark areas, fully functioning crosswalks at intersections. It should not require instances like this for the departmental personnel in the city to act promptly and forsee problematic areas. The engineers could take time to leave the four corners of their desks and observe what is happening through the eyes of the tourists and residents.

We had a lot of work done with barriers and speed bumps and crosswalks and lighting, not that long ago.
So, what are we missing here?

Sheriffs presence between midnight and 3 am when the idiots in their rented cars flying down Sunset at 60 miles per hour every weekend. If you live near the strip you would know.

Really was an incredibly stupid idea to allow bars to stay open later in WeHo. This is NOT LAS VEGAS! Allowing people another hour + to drink more just makes things worse. More LASD on the streets looking for drunk drivers!!! NOT LESS LASD!!!!

This is the same area where a woman was killed late at night in the past decade where the driver fled and abandoned his Range Rover and eventually turned himself in.

KTLA reported that the driver of the car had a green light.

Begs the question, was the pedestrian intoxicated? Was there a blood alcohol test done? If the driver had the green light and was not speeding and or was not impaired, then they should not be held responsible. Dance on razor Blades, get cut. Play with fire, get burned.
