Woman on evening run struck and killed in Tarzana

The search is on for the driver who struck and killed a woman who was on her daily run in the San Fernando Valley Tuesday night, officials said.

Investigators with the Los Angeles Police Department said the victim, later identified by the coroner's office as 45-year-old Rosa Zareaseisan, was less than two blocks away from her home. 

The hit-and-run happened around 10:30 p.m. on Reseda Boulevard in Tarzana, just south of the Braemar Country Club . The vehicle was last seen making a U-turn and continuing north on Reseda. When first responders arrived, Zareaseisan was declared dead at the scene.

LAPD investigators collected evidence at the scene and believe the suspect was driving a black Land Rover based on the pieces of the car that were left behind

A reward of up to $50,000 is available for anyone who provides information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction or resolution through civil compromise of a fatal hit-and-run, officials said.

Those with information about the deadly hit-and-run are asked to contact LAPD’s Valley Traffic Division at 818-644-8000.
