A homeless man was sleeping on the boardwalk in Venice this morning when he was struck by a hit-and-run driver. The accident occurred around 1:30 a.m. near Wavecrest Avenue. Authorities reported on the accident and confirmed the vehicle ran over the man in his sleeping bag, and the driver hit more traffic signs and a wall, then got out of the vehicle and switched seats with the passenger.
The victim’s identity has yet to be released and the driver is still at large. The suspected hit and run vehicle is either a black or dark blue SUV. The team at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers send our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the homeless man.
