The collision happened about 6:45 p.m. on Saticoy Street, near Eton Avenue, where an unidentified person was crossing the roadway in the middle of the block, said Detective Bill Bustos of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Valley Traffic Division.

The driver of a Toyota Camry did not stop after striking the pedestrian, who was not in a crosswalk at the time, Bustos said.

The victim was transported to a hospital but was not expected to survive, according to the LAPD.

Anyone with information about the incident was asked call the LAPD at 818-644-8000.

The Police Department’s hit-and-run reward program offers as much as $50,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of drivers in such incidents, Bustos said.
