A pedestrian who was crossing a South Los Angeles street with a walker when he was struck in a hit-and-run crash has died, authorities announced Tuesday.
The incident occurred about 10:25 p.m. Monday as the 65-year-old man was crossing Century Boulevard just west of South Main Street in the Broadway-Manchester neighborhood, the Los Angeles Police Department stated in a news release.
Investigators believe the unidentified man was struck by two drivers, neither of whom stopped or rendered aid, Sgt. Tim Jones said.
Video from the scene showed the victim’s walker still in the roadway as police conducted their investigation.
The man was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the news release stated.
One of the cars may have been a blue Honda hatchback being driven by a female, Jones said.
No description of the other driver or vehicle was available.
It was unclear if the victim was in a crosswalk at the time of the crash.
