UPDATE:  The woman struck by a car on Sunset Boulevard has been identified as Jill Piwowar and she is said to be in stable condition.

Three cars were racing with one another on Sunset Boulevard last night when one hit a woman in a pedestrian crosswalk. Sheriff’s deputies and personnel from the L.A. County fire department found the woman lying on the street near the intersection of Sunset and San Vicente boulevards at approximately 01:26 a.m. today.

Paramedics transported the woman to a local hospital. Her condition is unknown.

Sheriff’s deputies believe the vehicle, which fled the scene, was a blue BMW sportscar, possibly the M5 series.

The vehicle apparently was street racing with two other vehicles when it collided with the woman in the crosswalk.

If some of these people with their monumental ego needs out there street racing have this irresistible urge to experience the crazy 24 hour LA night club life, stealing cars, flying stolen jets, running over all the pesky pedestrians they want and, having massive shoot outs with the cops; do it in Grand Theft Auto V After Hours the video game available on Steam!

I am so relieved for her. This is despicable that people do agree IOU’s things and the innocent are left lying on and potentially dying on the pavement.

I blatantly saw street racing! I complained to sherriff’s and the LAPD Wilshire Division and these people are able to speed away 80 miles an hour in a commercial zone going or merging into residential neighborhoods or side streets like Willoughby… Read more »

Glad to hear that the lady is in stable condition. Time and time again I hear cars racing up on Sunset. I live just south of Sunset near Doheny and I am always wondering where out law-enforcement guys/gals are. The Sheriff station is only a few blocks south. There seems to be clubs of these gits who happen to own a tuned car and have this juvenile impulse to drag race or just drive too fast.
