  1. My Bf is the one that called 911 because when he rode by he heard someone hell yo help so he slowed down but then kept going because that area is a dangerous area and at night it’s scary so he called 911 and said someone i think may need help as he didn’t know what happened. he already spoke to lpd and gave them as much info as he could. he thinks it was a pick up truck with a bed on the back going in the direction of that area around the time he passed by being a red or dark brown color. I hope they catch the person and bring them to justice! R.i.p. Edward

  2. Its just sad. How can someone just keep going and not stop, when I heard the news my heart dropped. I drive that road almost every day, now I will find another way to go. Its just sad I tell you

  3. my best friend is neibors wit edwardo….i really feel 4 lupe and the other children lpd have 2 catch the person that did this i seen that little innocent child layin on the side of the road blood on the ground…..(moderated) rest in peace edward

  4. To Traffic light- No matter how many of you go up you can not prevent this from happening. This happened in the middle of a street not near an intersection, the street lights in the area are out and were being repaired, unfortunately the company doing the repairs can not be everywhere all day and night long. I don’t think Lakewood needs you at every intersection, it will only make getting through this town unbelievably slow.

  5. enough already! a working street light in that area may have helped but not a traffic light! learn to drive decently and we wont need traffic lights!

  6. It doesn’t matter if the child was wearing reflectors, the driver would still have responded in the same fashion, by driving away. When this person fled the scene, they have forfeited any type of benefit of the doubt.

    NOTE to any driver who hits a person, and drives away: If you stay around, and call for help, the pedestrian may have a greater fighting chance to survive. By driving away, you are delaying every precious moment that can be the difference between life, and death. What could have been considered assault, is now escalated to manslaughter.
