Los Angeles police arrested a man accused of fatally hitting a pedestrian over the weekend in the San Fernando Valley.

Saturday, the driver of a Nissan Cube was traveling east on Van Nuys Boulevard near Remick Avenue in Pacoima when the vehicle struck a 29-year-old man, police said.

The suspect, however, continued driving east. The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the scene and took the victim to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

The victim’s name was not released, pending notification of his family.

Police identified Arturo Sepulveda Carrera, 70, of Van Nuys, as the driver of the vehicle. He was arrested on suspicion of felony hit and run and his bond was set at $50,000.

Anyone with information related to the fatal crash is asked to call detectives with the Los Angeles Police Department’s Valley Traffic Division at (818) 644-8035.
