Someone dying is always heartbreaking, but knowing that someone killed your child or loved one is so heartbreaking. A 17 year old girl has died after being hit by a hit and run driver in Hyde Park neighborhood. She was hit Wednesday morning. A man did later turn himself in.

The victim was identified by a family member. The victim, Reanna Goss was hit around six thirty on Tuesday evening. She had been crossing in the middle of the block on 48th Street when she was sadly struck by an eastbound vehicle. The light blue Toyota Camry had been speed and then fled the scene, according to the police.

Reanna had to be transported to a Harbor-UCLA Medical Center on Tuesday, she was in critical condition at that time. According to Detective S. Smith from the LAPD South Traffic Division, She sadly died on Wednesday morning.

According to the police, later a thirty year old man from L.A. turned himself in to the police. He has been identified as, Jesus Palomares Jaime Jr. His arrest happened around nine thirty in the morning, he’s being held on a bail amount of $50,000.

Family and Friends Mourn Hit and Run Teen Victim

The family is planning a Wednesday evening vigil. Reanna has a younger brother and sister. Dozes of balloons and candle have been place where she was sadly hit. They were her favorite color, pink.

According to the fundraiser page on GoFundMe.com set up to help her family, Reanna went by the name of Annie. Annie was a senior at the City of Angels school. She eventually wanted to open a bakery that she would hope to call “Annie’s Pastries”.

Quote From Annie’s GoFundMe Page:

The life of a beautiful, sweet and caring young girl with a beautiful heart and impeccable style has been cut short.

 

Annie’s mother is quiet upset and has made a statement:

This is happening every single day,I just want to know, what’s the difference between a bullet and a car?

 

San Francisco Hit and Run

A driver in San Francisco accused of plowing his vehicle into five men after a fight and then fleeing was charged with one count of murder Thursday.

Mark Dennis, 33, also faces four counts of attempted murder, six counts of assault with a deadly weapon and four counts of assault causing great bodily injury, district attorney’s office spokesman Maxwell Szabo said.

Police say Dennis struck five men with his car and fled Wednesday after a fight in an industrial waterfront area of the city. One of the men died, and two others were hospitalized Thursday.

One was in critical condition after additional evaluations, and the other was in serious condition, San Francisco General hospital spokesman Brent Andrew said.

Police have released few details about what led up to the fight and crash.

Another Fatal San Francisco Crash

At least one person has died and others remain in life-threatening condition after a driver plowed his car into a group of five people on Wednesday in San Francisco, California, police said.

The San Francisco Police Department told reporters that a driver got into an altercation with five people just after 10 a.m., and struck them with his vehicle before fleeing the scene.

A person involved in the incident was arrested later Wednesday, according to local news.

Two of the victims are in serious condition, one is in critical condition and a fourth was in fair condition.

Officials said the incident appeared to be isolated and added they don’t believe the public is at risk. Sources told the San Francisco Chronicle that those who were injured or killed in the incident were attempting to steal the driver’s vehicle.

The incident occurred in an industrial neighborhood along the waterfront, a few miles from the city’s financial district.

Cop Involved in Hit and Run

A San Francisco police officer has been convicted of felony hit-and-run in connection with an off-duty crash that seriously injured two pedestrians.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports 40-year-old Christopher Kohrs was taken to jail Thursday after a jury found him guilty in the November 2015 crash at an intersection in the North Beach neighborhood. Police say Kohrs drove his cars into two men as they crossed a street.

Kohrs’ attorney argued during the trial that the off-duty officer fled the scene because he felt threatened by an aggressive crowd that gathered.

Kohrs turned himself in about 8 hours after the crash, frustrating prosecutors who said they couldn’t collect evidence to determine if he was under the influence when he was behind the wheel.
