Police are seeking witnesses to help find a hit-and-run driver who struck and killed a man along Sunset Boulevard in Westwood on Saturday night.
The collision took place about 10:15 p.m. on a dark, winding stretch of road in the 10200 block of Sunset Boulevard, just east of Beverly Glen Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
The victim, initially described only as male and believed to be transient, was pronounced dead at the scene.
No description of the vehicle that hit him was available. It continued westbound after striking the victim, police said.
Coroner's officials withheld the victim's identity Sunday pending notification of family members, Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner Investigator Rudy Molano said. He was described as a man in his 30s.
The city of Los Angeles offers a standing $50,000 reward for information leading to the identification, capture and conviction of any driver involved in a deadly hit-and-run.
