A 64-year-old man who was found dead after being struck by two vehicles whose drivers left the scene in the Central-Alameda area of Los Angeles was identified by county authorities Friday.
The pedestrian was walking outside of a crosswalk at about 10 p.m. Monday at 50th and Alameda streets when he was struck by the first vehicle that left the scene, according to a desk officer at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Operations Center. The second vehicle struck him when he was on the pavement and the driver did not stop.
The pedestrian was identified by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office as Luis Alvares.
Descriptions of the vehicles were not immediately available.
