The Los Angeles Police Department is looking for a driver who struck and killed a pedestrian in North Hollywood Thursday night.
The pedestrian, a 55-year-old woman, was in a marked crosswalk on Laurel Canyon Boulevard at Keswick Street around 8:30 p.m. when she was struck by a two-tone older blue Toyota or Nissan pickup truck, police said in a news release.
The truck ran a red light while striking the woman and continued southbound without stopping to help the woman. The victim was taken to a local hospital in grave condition, where she died, police said.
Video of the suspect’s vehicle pulling into a parking lot after the collision was released by LAPD.
Authorities believe the truck sustained front-end damage from the collision.
