LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — Police were asking for the public’s help Tuesday in locating the driver responsible for a hit-and-run crash that killed a 90-year-old man.
It happened on April 27 at about 5:10 a.m. at the intersection of Virgil Avenue and 6th Street in Koreatown.
The victim, Joo Yoon, was riding his bike in a marked crosswalk when he was fatally struck by a man driving a newer model Nissan GT-R, police said.
Yoon was taken to the hospital, where he later died.
The driver of the car did not remain at the crash site to render aid or to identify himself, according to police.
The car was described as dark grey or gun-metal, with a 3-inch white racing stripe from front fender to tail light section, on both sides.
The vehicle will likely have damage to the front bumper area and the hood, police said.
The driver was described as an Asian man, about 25 years old with black hair and brown eyes.
He was about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighed about 190 pounds.
Police were also looking for a second vehicle described as a newer model car, possibly an Audi, which was black or dark in color.
Anyone with information was urged to call LAPD West Traffic Division at (213) 473-0222.
