Two pedestrians died over the weekend in traffic accidents in Palmdale and Valley Glen, authorities said.
A Quartz Hill man walking along 25th Street East south of Arnold Drive was killed by a hit-and-run driver about 11 p.m. Saturday, said Sgt. Ed Raulston of the Los Angeles County sheriff's Palmdale station. Witnesses said a white, four-door Honda sedan fled the area.
The victim, whose identity was withheld pending notification of his family, was walking along the unlighted roadway with a companion after both men had been drinking, authorities said. Investigators are looking into whether one or both of them were in the roadway when the victim was hit by the car.
Anyone with information about the accident or the hit-and-run car, which is damaged along its front right side, should call investigators at (661) 267-4300.
