A woman was struck and killed during a hit-and-run in Tarzana Tuesday night and now police are trying to find the driver.

Police received calls around 10:40 p.m. that there was a person who has been hit by a vehicle near the Braemar Country Club on Reseda Boulevard.

When first responders arrived to the scene they found a woman who was already deceased in the middle of the street. They also found vehicle debris scattered in the street.

A man who was driving down Reseda Boulevard saw the debris scattered on the road and spotted the woman. He pulled over and rushed to help her before calling the police.

"I wish I could do something, but it was very too late," said Aidin Yousefi, who tried to help the woman. "I'm sorry for the family. I think she was from somewhere here."

According to the LAPD Valley Traffic Division, the woman was jogging only about a half of mile from her home when she was hit.

At this time police believe the person who hit her was driving a Land Rover that should have significant damage to it. They still do not have a description of the driver.
