The crash occurred about 9 p.m. in the 4100 block of South Crenshaw Boulevard.

A black four-door Nissan Murano struck a woman in her 50s and left the scene without the driver rendering any aid to the victim, Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Adams said.

A witness to the incident who did not wish to be identified told KTLA he overheard a friend of the victim's frantically pleading for help and attempting to console her, saying “I’m not going to let you go.”

The unidentified woman was taken to a local hospital, where she later died, Adams said.

Investigators do not have a license plate number for the hit-and-run vehicle and are searching the area for any surveillance video.

Anyone with information can call the Police Department’s South L.A. Traffic Division at 323-421-2577.
