The California Highway Patrol says a man in his 30s was hit and killed Monday morning by a car on Elk Horn Boulevard near 30th Street.
"We could immediately tell from his injuries that it was a hit-and-run -- he was dead when we arrived, said CHP Officer Rueben Franklin.
A neighbor tells FOX40 they heard a "loud thud" just before 4 a.m.
Officers only describe the man by giving his age and saying that he was local.
As of Monday morning there was no description of the suspect or a suspect vehicle.
