The man was struck about 6:50 p.m. Thursday as he was crossing Bullard avenues, according to Officer William Cooper of the Los Angeles Police Department.

The driver got out of his vehicle but then got back in and fled the scene, the LAPD reported. The suspect then headed westbound on Alhambra Avenue from Bullard Avenue.

The driver is described as a Hispanic man between the ages of 30 and 40 who was wearing a gray shirt and blue jeans. His vehicle was described as a 2000-2010 white Toyota Tacoma pickup truck with power washing equipment in the back, Cooper said.
