Fatal Hit-and-Run Crash at Elm Avenue and Grove Avenue, Lavonda Mosley Dies
FRESNO, CA (March 8, 2021) – A woman who died in a hit-and-run accident at a southwest Fresno intersection Friday evening has been identified.
The Fresno County Sheriff-Coroner’s Office identified the victim as 55-year-old Lavonda Mosley of Fresno.
Around 7:00 p.m. on March 5, officers responded to a call of a pedestrian hit by a vehicle at Elm Avenue and Grove Avenue.
When they arrived, they found Mosley lying in the roadway along Elm Avenue with severe injuries. Life-saving measures were performed, but Mosley died at the scene.
A witness told officers that Mosley was walking across the street when a fast-moving car going north on Elm Avenue struck her. The driver of the vehicle did not stop to render aid.
Initially, the witness was not sure what the car had hit. It was only after they stopped that they saw it was a person.
The car was described as a four-door gray sedan, possibly a Kia Optima, with major front-end damage.
The intersection was closed into the late evening as officers continued their investigation.
