The LAPD hopes surveillance video will help them capture the hit-and-run driver who killed a man on Saturday night. A camera mounted on a hotel recorded the scene as a pickup truck parked in the 500 block of Stanford Street pulled away from the curb.

Police said the victim, 58-year-old Roosevelt Turner, had been standing at the driver's side door. They said he was running alongside the truck when he fell and was run over.

Several witnesses are also seen on the video.

Anyone with information is urged to call the LAPD Central traffic division at (213) 972-1853.
