On Sunday August 28th, 2011, at approximately 1:40 a.m., a 70-year-old male, White, resident of Sun Valley, was walking in the number two lane on Saticoy Street, just west of Atoll Avenue. Witnesses said a possible white, four door sedan, traveling westbound on Saticoy Street collided with the pedestrian. The driver failed to stop and render aid or identify themselves as required by law.  The vehicle was last seen northbound on Fulton Avenue from Saticoy Street.

Los Angeles City Fire Department personnel responded and pronounced the man dead at scene. His name is being withheld until his family can be notified.
