Christopher,

here is a solution based on Replace

In[1]:=
z = {{1, 4, 5, 6}, {7, 8, 9, 1}, {1, 2, 4, 3}};
Replace[z, {pre___, l2_, l1_} :> {pre, l1 + l2}, {1}]

Out[1]=
{{1, 4, 11}, {7, 8, 10}, {1, 2, 7}}

and another one based on mapping ReplaceAll

In[2]:=
z = {{1, 4, 5, 6}, {7, 8, 9, 1}, {1, 2, 4, 3}};
(#1 /. {pre___, l2_, l1_} :> {pre, l1 + l2} & ) /@ z

Out[2]=
{{1, 4, 11}, {7, 8, 10}, {1, 2, 7}}
