A man died at a hospital Friday, four days after being struck in downtown Los Angeles by an SUV whose driver fled the scene.
The man, whose name was not released, was crossing Fourth Street, at Central Street, about 7:45 p.m. on Sunday, when a dark colored SUV struck him while it was traveling southbound on Central Street, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
