The driver caused two collisions just minutes apart, involving different vehicles on the streets of Hollywood. The second collision killed Bowers and seriously injured a friend in the car with him, fellow comedian Josh Adam Meyers, KTLA-TV reported.
A 21-year-old man driving under the influence of alcohol was involved in a hit-and-run crash near the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Argyle Avenue on Jan. 3 about 12:40 a.m., police say.
