A man who was struck by two vehicles that fled the scene in Coachella died at a hospital, authorities said Saturday.

Deputies responded at 10:24 p.m. Friday to the intersection of Cesar Chavez and Cairo streets, where they found a man about 50 years old lying unresponsive in the roadway, said Riverside County sheriff’s Sgt. Steven Rivera.

Paramedeics performed lifesaving measures and took the man to a hospital, where he died from his injuries, Rivera said. His name was withheld pending notification of relatives.

“The preliminary investigation revealed the pedestrian was struck by two separate vehicles moments apart, both of whom fled the scene without stopping,” the sergeant said.

Anyone who witnessed the crash or has information was asked to call investigators 760-863-8990.
