A man died after being hit with a baseball bat and struck with a vehicle late Sunday night in South Los Angeles, authorities said.

Two men were being sought in connection with the attack, which happened about midnight near the intersection of West 42nd Place and South Main Street (map).

The incident began when the three men got into an altercation at a bar and one of them urinated on the tires of the vehicle, said Sgt. German Hurtado of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Newton Division.

Somewhere in the area of the bar, a passenger exited the vehicle and hit the victim with the bat, Hurtado said.

The driver then drove over the victim, a man in his late 30s to early 40s, according to police.

The victim was transported to a hospital, where he died, authorities said.

The attackers were described only as two Hispanic men. Police declined to release a description of the vehicle, citing the ongoing homicide investigation.
