A 55-year-old North Hollywood man is dead after he was struck by a van while he was walking across a street Saturday night.

The man, whose identity police are withholding pending notification of kin, was hit by a dark van at 9:43 p.m. while he was crossing Oxnard Street mid-block east of Farmdale Avenue, according to the Los Angeles Police Department’s Valley Traffic Division.
