    Police are asking for the public's help in finding the driver of a gray Jeep Wrangler after a man was killed in a hit-and-run on Doheny Drive near 3rd Street Thursday night, police said.

    A pedestrian was struck and killed in a hit-and-run near the Four Seasons Hotel near Beverly Hills Thursday night, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

    The person's body was seen in the middle of the road in the 100 block of S. Doheny Drive near W. 3rd Street and Alden Drive, an area neighboring Beverly Hills and West Hollywood.

    A gray or green four-door hard top Jeep Wrangler struck the man about 10:30 p.m. while he was jaywalking across the street, LAPD Capt. Rolando Solano said.

    The 33-year-old victim was not from the Los Angeles area, Solano said.
