Deputies said they discovered the victim dead at the scene. They believe the man, who has not been identified by the coroner's office, was a pedestrian hit by a driver who did not stop.

The motorist possibly drove a blue or gray Honda sedan and was last seen entering the northbound 605 Freeway, Detective Carl Anna told KTLA. He added that the vehicle's headlights, windows or windshield might have been damaged in the incident.

Officials did not have the car's license plate.

Anyone with information about the incident can call the Sheriff's Norwalk station at 562-863-8711.
