According to the KTLA News and My News LA, the tragic accident occurred on Wednesday afternoon. Officers reported the collision shortly after 4 p.m.

The incident began when a Ford pickup truck was driving west on East 88th Place. At the same time, a Toyota Camry was going north on Main Street in the Broadway-Manchester neighborhood.

Police said the Toyota then collided for an unknown reason with the Ford. The pickup went off the road and ultimately struck a male pedestrian and a parked Nissan Sentra.

The name of the deceased victim has not been yet released pending notification of next of kin. Meanwhile, police affirmed that three male occupants of the truck fled on foot following the collision.

One of them was wearing a yellow shirt with jeans and carrying a DeWalt toolbox. Another was last seen in a green vest and running toward an alley on Broadway toward 9oth Street.
