A 50-year-old male was struck and killed early this morning by a hit-and-run driver, according to KTLA. The victim was riding on North Glendale Boulevard near Sunset Boulevard at around 1 this morning when he was hit by a silver-colored Mitsubishi. He was pinned against a car, according to reports, and a witness provided the vehicle's license plate number, although both that information and the deceased's name have not been made public.
