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.
