Authorities are hunting for a hit-and-run driver who struck and killed an elderly man on a sidewalk near La Puente. 

CHP Public Information Officer Rodrigo Jimenez tells KNX 1070 News 82-year-old Ramon Reynoso was working at the time of the deadly crash, digging a hole for a sprinkler system along Valley Boulevard.

"1990 Ford Ranger was traveling westbound on Valley Boulevard in the right lane. It veered over, crossed over the sidewalk and struck the gentleman. After the collision the white Ford Ranger came to a stop a little bit past the scene and eventually it didn't stop at the scene instead," he said.

Officer Jimenez says the Reynoso family is distraught over the death of the elderly family member, who was always a hard worker. 

Authorities believe the suspect may be a landscaper.
