A heart-wrenching incident unfolded on a fateful Sunday morning in Gardena, as a hit-and-run crash claimed the life of an innocent child. The tragic incident occurred on February 11, when 5-year-old Patrick Mateo Chacon and his grandmother were crossing a street, only to be struck by a callous driver who callously fled the scene. The authorities confirmed this devastating news on Monday, leaving the community in shock and mourning.

The identity of the young victim, Patrick Mateo Chacon, was revealed by the authorities while they continue their tireless efforts to find the suspect who remains at large, as reported by Lt. Chris Cuff.

It is important to note that leaving the scene of an accident where someone has been injured or killed is considered a criminal act, irrespective of who may be at fault for the incident. The law demands responsibility and accountability from all individuals involved in such unfortunate circumstances.

Unfortunately, the details regarding the description of the vehicle responsible for this heart-rending accident are currently unknown, further complicating the ongoing investigation.

The young boy and his grandmother were diligently using a designated crosswalk at the intersection of Marine and Budlong avenues when the tragedy struck. According to Lt. Chris Cuff, the driver of the car, who was heading eastbound on Marine, made a left turn onto northbound Budlong, colliding with the innocent pedestrians.
