August 12, 2013|By Joseph Serna

Los Angeles police are looking for a driver involved in a fatal hit-and-run in the Crenshaw District on Monday morning.

About 1 a.m., a 37-year-old man was crossing Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard near Nicolet Avenue when he was hit by a vehicle, said Sgt. Daniel Ellerson. The driver continued on after hitting the man, police said.

Based on pieces of the vehicle left at the scene, police believe that the pedestrian was hit by a 1999-2000 champagne-colored Land Rover Discovery, Ellerson said. The vehicle should have significant front-end damage, he said.

The victim’s identity has not been released pending notification of next of kin.

The investigation is ongoing, Ellerson said.
