Los Angeles police are searching for a hit-and-run driver who struck a man out for an early morning jog.

KABC-TV reports the crash happened around 4:15 a.m. Thursday in the Playa Vista area near Loyola Marymount University.

Police say the female driver first struck a light pole and then the jogger, a man in his 60s, who suffered possibly life-threatening injuries.

The suspect then ran off.

Television images showed the Buick with a crumpled front end.

KABC reports witnesses said the woman was on her cell phone and may have been picked up by someone.
