The Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD) is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a driver involved in a Hit and Run Fatality. On November 13, 2021, at approximately 8:04 p.m., SMPD Officers responded to 10th Street and Pico Blvd for a traffic collision involving a pedestrian. Upon their arrival, they found the pedestrian, a 58-year-old male, suffering from massive trauma. He was pronounced deceased at the scene of the collision.
