Authorities continued to search Monday for the driver who fatally struck twin sisters as they brawled in the middle of a Los Angeles street.

Tanisha and Tamaya Davis, both 31, apparently had been fighting with each other about 3 a.m. Sunday when their altercation moved into the roadway in the 4200 block of Leimert Boulevard near Leimert Park, said Norma Eisenman, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department.

Witnesses said a vehicle struck the women as they tussled, killing both of them. Coroner’s investigator Kelsie Weber called the incident a hit-and-run.

Eisenman said the LAPD would release more information about the deaths Monday. Eisenman said the women lived in the area; Weber confirmed they resided in the city of Los Angeles.
