A pedestrian was struck by three vehicles and killed in Hollywood, and police Friday sought public help to find one of the motorists, who fled the scene.
Paramedics sent to Wilton Place and Santa Monica Boulevard about 9:45 p.m. Thursday took the man to a hospital, where he died, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. His name was withheld, pending notification of his relatives.
The man was crossing outside of a crosswalk when he was hit by three vehicles, including a white SUV that kept going, police said. The other two motorists remained at the scene and were interviewed by officers.
“Drivers are reminded that if they become involved in a collision, they should pull over and stop as soon as it is safe to do so, notify emergency services, and remain at the scene to identify themselves,” police said in a statement.
A standing reward of up to $50,000 has been offered by the city of Los Angeles for information that helps police solve a fatal hit-and-run.
Anyone with information on the case was urged to call detectives at 213-473-0234; 877-LAPD-247; or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
