A man was struck by a vehicle and killed in the Koreatown area, and police Tuesday sought public help to find the hit-and-run driver.

Paramedics sent to Crenshaw Boulevard and Ninth Street at about 9:30 p.m. Monday took the injured victim — described only as a man roughly in his 30s — to a hospital, where he died, the Los Angeles Police Department reported.

Information on his identity was not immediately released.

A preliminary investigation revealed the man was crossing the street outside of a marked crosswalk when he was struck by a white vehicle driving southbound on Crenshaw Boulevard, according to the LAPD.

The driver stopped and exited the car following the collision, but re-entered and fled the scene without identifying themselves or offering aid, police said.

No further description of the vehicle or the driver was available.

A standing reward of up to $50,000 has been offered by the city of Los Angeles for information that helps solve a fatal hit and run. Anyone with information on the case was urged to call 877-LAPD-247, or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
