Authorities Wednesday sought public help to find the hit- and-run motorist responsible for killing a pedestrian in Compton.

Christopher Frushon, 19, was in a crosswalk about 8:45 p.m. on May 26 at Wilmington Avenue north of Stockwell Street when he was struck by a car that kept going. Frushon later died at a hospital, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

“The suspect vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed, well above the posted 35 mph speed limit, when he ran the red stop light at Stockwell Street,” a sheriff’s statement said.

“He (Frushon) was looking to the future and (was) planning to move up north with his mom to start a better life,” the statement said. “Christopher lived an active lifestyle, he was planning to be a welder, and loved spending time outdoors riding his bike with his dad, and attending concerts in the park.”

The suspect’s car was described as a mid-size sedan, possibly a Dodge Charger or a Kia, with extensive front-end damage. Anyone with information on the case was urged to call (310) 605-3516, or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
