A Los Angeles Police Department officer died Wednesday from injuries he suffered last week when he was struck by a vehicle while directing traffic at a crash scene in South L.A.
The LAPD announced in a statement Wednesday the death of Officer Jose Anzora. He worked for the department since 2011, and spent the majority of his career in the Newton Division.
Following the crash, Anzora was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
Police said the driver who struck Anzora stopped and is cooperating with the investigation.
