The LAPD said debris was left in the roadway that contained car parts. In the investigation, the department said the suspect was driving what is believed to be a 2013-2018 silver Toyota Avalon. Investigators also noted that the vehicle should have substantial damage on the right front-end of the vehicle.

"Drivers are reminded that if they become involved in a collision, they should pull over and stop as soon as it is safe to do so, notify emergency services, and remain at the scene to identify themselves," police said.

"The public is also reminded that, as pedestrians, they should exercise caution when crossing streets by doing so in a safe manner, obeying traffic lights, crossing within marked crosswalks, and obeying the rules of the road."

A standing reward of up to $50,000 has been offered by the city of Los Angeles for information that helps police solve a fatal hit and run.
