The collision took place about 9:25 p.m. as the woman was walking north across Devonshire Street, just east of Balboa Boulevard, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a written statement. She was not within a marked crosswalk.

“She was struck by a black sports sedan going eastbound on Devonshire Street,” the statement said. A further description of the car was not available.

The driver failed to stop and fled without trying to help the severely injured woman, officials said.
