Police are searching for a hit-and-run driver who struck and killed a teenager in South LA Tuesday night before he picked up a ride from the scene with another driver.
The driver hit at least seven parked cars as well as a 19-year-old who was leaving a car near E. 105th Street and Wadsworth Avenue around 7:20 p.m., according to LAPD.
