A 29-year-old man was fatally struck by a hit-and-run driver in Hollywood early Friday, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The crash was reported about 3 a.m. near the intersection of Highland and Willoughby avenues.

Police said a white, late-model Mercedes C300 or similar vehicle was heading north on Highland when it crashed into a pedestrian crossing west from the southeast corner of the intersection.

The pedestrian died at the scene. He was later identified as Richard Dubose. The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner’s Office had previously given a different spelling of the victim’s name.

The driver then left the scene without identifying him or herself, or stopping to help the victim, police said.

A reward of up to $50,000 is available for anyone who can provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of the hit-and-run driver.

Anyone with information can call 213-473-0234 or 213-473-0222.
