A Los Angeles police officer has died days after he was hit by a car while he was controlling traffic in the Historic South-Central area of South Los Angeles.

The police officer killed was identified as Jose Anzora in a statement from L.A. Police Department Chief Michel Moore.

Anzora was a 10-year veteran of the department and spent the significant time of his career there in the Newton Division, where he was assigned recently. He is survived by his wife and mother, among other family members.

“Our deepest condolences go out to Officer Anzora’s wife, family, colleagues, and friends in this most difficult time,” Moore wrote. “His passing is a loss for not only his brothers and sister in the LAPD, but for the people of Los Angeles for whom he gave his life.”

“Officer Anzora, may you Rest In Peace,” LAPD wrote on Twitter.

The crash took place around 7:30 p.m. Friday in the area of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Trinity Street. Anzora was subsequently admitted to the hospital, where his condition was deemed serious.

Officials had not provided an update on Anzora’s condition before informing about his death on Wednesday.

The driver involved remained at the scene and was working with investigators. LAPD said the person was not suspected of a crime and the incident seemed to be an accident.

Officials have not provided any more details about the crash or what led up to it.
