1 woman dead, another injured in Hawthorne hit-and-run

HAWTHORNE, Calif. (KABC) -- A woman is dead and a man seriously injured after a hit-and-run crash Saturday night in Hawthorne, authorities say.

Police say the two victims were walking around 1:45 a.m. along Prairie Avenue, near El Segundo Boulevard, when a driver hit them and took off.

Evidence at the scene led police to a home in Hawthorne, where they arrested a suspect for driving under the influence and hit-and-run.

Another driver struck a Hawthorne police car during that investigation.

Nobody was hurt in that crash and police say driving under the influence was not the cause for the second crash.
