Erwin Majano; Motorcyclist Accused Of Hit-and-run In Boyle Heights Nabbed

Authorities Thursday will gather at LAPD headquarters to provide details about the arrest of a man who allegedly drove a motorcycle that struck a 13-year-old boy in Boyle Heights — leaving the youngster with a severed leg in a hit-and-run.

The suspect, Erwin Majano, was taken into custody early Tuesday morning in connection with the March 30 hit-and-run that severely injured Joshua Mora, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Officials planned a Thursday morning news conference to discuss the case.

Majano, a 29-year-old Banning resident, was arrested during a joint operation between the Los Angeles and Banning police departments, according to NBC4, which reported that Majano was being held on $50,000 bail.

Mora was struck by a motorcycle as he crossed Whittier Boulevard.

“I was in the middle, basically,” Mora told NBC4. “That’s when I heard the motorcyclist coming in fast. I tried to get out of the way so he wouldn’t hit me, and it turns out he took my whole leg.”

People on the scene helped Mora until the paramedics arrived. The teen was taken to a hospital, where he underwent several surgeries.

Mora said he’s thankful to be alive.

“I’m just thinking about the good things, like me having my family and everything,” he said.

A Gofundme account to help pay Mora’s medical expenses had raised more than $37,000 as of Wednesday night.

“He has always loved sports and just having fun!” the Mora family said on the fundraising page. “We wanted your support in helping him towards recovery and possibly towards a prosthetic leg.”
