The son and grandson of federal court judges was killed by ahit and run driver days before New Year’s Eve and
died from his injuries on December 31. 23 year old David Pregerson was a UCLA graduate and up and coming television writer just starting off on his career. It appears that the young Pregerson had no interest in following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather and chose the entertainment business over the court system.
Investigators are still looking for clues into the tragic accident that occurred in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles, California around 3 a.m. on December 27, 2013. Pregerson’s body was found by a passer-by on Chautauqua Boulevard lying in the street. Emergency services were summoned and transported Pregerson to UCLA Medical Center where he died of his injuries.
David Pregerson was the son of Judge Dean Pregerson who is a federal court judge in Downtown Los Angeles and the grandson of Judge Harry Pregerson who sits on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in Los Angeles.
LAPD Detectives are seeking any help in solving this mystery. Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call them at: (213) 473-0234.
