A 58-year-old man was killed when he got out of his vehicle in Beverly Hills and was struck by as many as two vehicles, both of which left the scene, police said Wednesday.

The man was struck about 10:55 p.m. Tuesday in the 300 block of North Crescent Drive, between Wilshire and Santa Monica boulevards, Beverly Hills police Lt. Lincoln Hoshino said.

Officers called to the scene found him lying in the roadway, unconscious, and started CPR until paramedics arrived, Hoshino said.

The man was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Hoshino said.

His name was withheld pending notification of his next of kin.

“Based on witness statements and video evidence, investigators believe that there are possibly two vehicles involved that struck the victim, who had just exited his vehicle when he was struck,” Hoshino said.

The first vehicle was described as a dark or black four-door sedan that was last seen northbound in the 400 block of North Crescent Drive.

The second was described as a dark-colored minivan or SUV. It was last seen southbound on Rexford Drive from Santa Monica Boulevard, Hoshino said.

Anyone with information that could help identify either of the vehicles’ drivers was urged to call Beverly Hills police traffic investigators at (310) 285-2195.
