The Los Angeles Police Department responded to a call near the corner of White Street and Strathern Street around 11:15 p.m. Saturday.
The crash ended up killing a 15-year-old pedestrian, later identified by loved ones as Carlos Pech, at the scene. The driver took off from the crash scene, but was eventually arrested.
Pech's mother, Christine Hernandez, told FOX 11 she doesn't really have a message for the alleged hit-and-run suspect.
"They should have just stayed if it was an accident. Things happen, I forgive them. I can't say with a grudge," Hernandez said.
A GoFundMe page has been launched for the grieving family.
