A 32-year-old man lying in a Westlake roadway was struck by a pickup truck that fled the scene, and police are working to identity the driver in connection with the hit-and-run.
Angeleno Kyle Ray, 32, was “possibly in medical distress and passed out” in the right lane of westbound 6th Street west of Bonnie Brae Street at around 7:25 p.m. on Jan. 23, police said in a news release.
As he lay in the street, a blue Dodge Ram ran over him and dragged him 20 feet, then fled the scene. Ray was declared dead at the scene.
Video of the truck, a 2007-13 Ram with custom lights and rims and a truck bed equipped with a rack, has been shared to YouTube.
