Police were investigating Wednesday a hit-and-run collision in South Los Angeles that left a woman seriously injured.

The 34-year-old woman was crossing the street Monday at 111th Place and Figueroa Street on her way home from work when she was struck by a 1991 gray or blue Toyota Camry, license plate 2VWL540, police said.

The Toyota was traveling westbound on 111th Place and headed southbound onto Figueroa Street after the collision. The female driver left the scene without stopping, as required by law, said Det. Grace Brady of the Los Angeles Police Department.

The victim, a mother of two, sustained life-threatening head trauma and was being treated at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. Detectives were preparing to interview at least five witness who saw the incident, Brady said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact LAPD South Traffic Division at (323) 290-6063 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
