(KABC) — RANCHO PALOS VERDES, Calif.: The daughter of late actor Michael Landon, who was famous for his roles in hit TV shows like “Bonanza” and “Little House on the Prairie,” wants a possible witness to her son’s death to come forward and help with the investigation.
Dylan Lupia, who was 24 years old, was killed on August 17 by a Los Angeles County Metro bus while walking in the bike lane on Palos Verde Drive South near the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes.
Shawna Landon says that the bus driver kept going and didn’t stop until about a mile and a half later to say that his bus had been broken into. “How could you not have hit anyone?
How could you have missed hitting a person and then leaving him on the side of the road?” Shawna Landon said something while she was crying “There’s no way he couldn’t have seen him walking up from behind him and not stopped or called 911… It’s not fair. It’s hard to understand.”
Eyewitness News was told by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department that they are looking into the case and have not ruled out a criminal case. However, they are still waiting for reports from the coroner’s office.
Metro said in a written statement, “We are still working closely with law enforcement and our internal team to figure out what happened and why this terrible bus accident happened.”
Robert Barta, Landon’s lawyer, said that the Metro bus had nine cameras and a black box, but he hasn’t been able to see that evidence yet.

Barta says that there might be another person who saw what happened. Barta said, “There was a passenger on the bus.” “We’re hoping that this publicity will help us find this bus passenger.”
Barta wants anyone who knows anything about this case to call his office at 310-479-1454. Shawna Landon has put up a small memorial for her son near where the accident happened. She goes there every week.
She said, “He was such a kind and wonderful person, and his family loved him.” “It doesn’t make sense for a child to die. It’s not supposed to happen, and the fact that there are still so many questions makes it even sadder.”
