Los Angeles police officers are still looking for the driver who critically injured a USC student and then fled the scene in East Hollywood in early November. The 21-year-old motorcyclist was riding near Vermont and Lexington Avenues when a burgundy Safari struck the biker and fled the scene. The injured student was taken to the hospital with numerous fractures and injuries and was in critical condition.
Officers identified the hit and run driver as 31-year-old Jose Arevalo who is a native of Guatemala and who is in the country illegally. According to the LAPD, they believe that he may try to flee the country. Leaving the scene of an accident without lending aid and waiting for the authorities is against the law and classified as a hit and run. If he is caught, he faces jail time, severe fines, and the potential loss of his driver’s license.
California motorcyclists are unfortunately the victims of many unnecessary hit and run accidents each and every year. In fact, according to the California Highway Patrol, 247 deaths occur each and every year in the State of California due to hit and run accidents. Because of the severity of many motorcycle accidents, drivers who are drunk, underage, already in trouble with the law, or scared may flee the scene of the accident, leaving motorcyclists with critical injuries.

No matter what the reason, drivers who flee the scene of any accident are breaking the law.
