LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Authorities Friday asked for the public’s help in identifying a hit-and-run driver who fatally struck a pedestrian near the Four Seasons hotel.
The crash took place at 10:25 p.m. Thursday on Doheny Drive just north of Third Street.
A 33-year-old man was jaywalking when he was hit, according to police.
“The victim was a male, not from this area — according to his address — and was walking across the street when he was struck,” Capt. Rolando Solano said.
Witnesses described the suspect’s vehicle as a dark gray or green four-door, hard-top Jeep Wrangler.
The victim’s identity has not yet been released.
Nearby residents say traffic on Doheny Drive has increased in recent weeks.
Anyone with information was asked to contact the LAPD at (213)473-0234.
