Police sought the public’s help Tuesday to identify a pair of hit-and-run drivers who left a man fatally injured in Venice.

The victim was standing between the westbound lanes of Venice Boulevard, near Brenta Place, at about 12:20 a.m. Friday when he was struck by a vehicle that fled the scene traveling westbound, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The collision sent the man into one of the lanes of Venice Boulevard, where he was struck by a second vehicle driving westbound that also fled the scene.

Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics were called to render aid, but the man died of his injuries at the scene, according to police. His name was not immediately released pending notification of next of kin.

The first vehicle to strike the man was described as a tan 2000-10 sedan. The second vehicle was described as a light-colored 2012 Range Rover driven by a roughly 20-year-old man with dark blonde hair and a thin build.

Anyone with information on the collisions was asked to contact LAPD West Traffic Division detectives at 213-473-0236 or 213-473-0234, or the watch commander at 213-473-0562.
