Authorities today sought public help to find the driver of the first of two vehicles that struck and fatally injured a pedestrian in the Cypress Park area of Los Angeles.

According to police, a woman in her 30s was struck by the two vehicles that were northbound on San Fernando Road near Loosmore Street as she crossed outside the marked crosswalk about 2:15 a.m. Thursday.

The woman, whose name was withheld pending family notification, died at a hospital.

“The driver of the primary vehicle left the scene, failing to stop, render aid and exchange information as required by law,” according to a Los Angeles Police Department statement. “The second driver involved in the accident stayed at the scene and cooperated with the investigation.”
