The Los Angeles Police Department is asking for the public’s help in finding a driver who struck and killed a scooter rider in East Hollywood early Sunday morning.
A man riding a Lime scooter across Western Avenue north of Sierra Vista Avenue was hit a few minutes before 2:30 a.m., police said in a news release.
The man, who was struck by what police described as a black sedan, was ejected from the scooter and came to rest in the roadway, where he was hit again by a silver Lexus.
The Lexus driver stayed at the scene and called authorities, who took the man to a local hospital, where he later died.
The black sedan, which fled north on Western Avenue, is believed to be a Mitsubishi Eclipse convertible made between 2001 and 2005.
