A 44-year-old man was fatally hit by a vehicle Friday in the University Park area of Los Angeles.

Alden Richards Jr., whose city of residence was unknown, was struck while standing at a bus stop about 5 a.m. near Adams Boulevard and Flower Street by a southbound vehicle on Flower Street, said Los Angeles Police Department Officer Mike Lopez.

The vehicle, containing at least two occupants, then crashed into a nearby electrical pole.

Paramedics pronounced Richards dead at the scene, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. It was not immediately known if anyone else was injured in the collision.

Officers detained the driver of the vehicle, who may have been driving while impaired, but it was unclear if an arrest was made.
