Thirteen-year old Vendale Joseph, Jr. of Altadena suffered a broken pelvis walking home from school when a driver of an SUV hit him while making a right at the corner of East New York Drive and North Hill Avenue at about 3:00 p.m on May 3, 2012. The driver of the SUV stopped to see if Vendale was hurt; Vendale responded that he was okay. The driver then said she had to drop her son off at karate and left the scene of the accident. The driver later returned, asked for Vendale’s phone number, and then left the scene again, saying she had to pick up her daughter.
Although there were witnesses to the accident, no one called 911. Vendale, not knowing the extent of his injury, walked four or five more blocks home with a broken pelvis.
