Man walking dog gravely injured as result of Los Angeles crash

A man walking his dog in the Shadow Hills section of Los Angeles was hit by a car and left in grave condition.

In the incident, a black Honda Accord and a black Infiniti SUV were traveling on Sunland Boulevard near the intersection of Stonehurst Avenue when they collided. The Honda was moving at high rate of speed, according to a news release from the Los Angeles Police Department.

After the crash, the driver of the Infiniti lost control of the car, hitting a curb. It overturned and hit the dog walker, who was identified as between 50 and 55 years old.

The man was taken to the hospital, but no update on his condition was available immediately. It was unclear whether the dog was injured; city animal regulations officials took the dog from the scene.

The Honda driver attempted to escape but was located not far from the accident site, police said. The man, a resident of Tujunga was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and could face additional charges.

The SUV driver and passenger remained on site and were cooperative. They were not injured.

This man was doing what thousands of us nationwide do every night: take our beloved pets out for a nighttime walk. He left his home – and perhaps his loved ones – for just a few minutes, expecting to return home. Because of this incident, he might not.

Should he survive, his medical bills, lost income and rehabilitation costs likely will be immense. Should he pass away, he could be leaving behind people who depended on him for their support. A consultation with an attorney would be appropriate to allow family members to discuss details of the case and their next steps.
