Los Angeles County sheriff's detectives are investigating a hit-and-run death early Monday in Paramount, officials said.

It's unclear how the 2:45 a.m. crash happened, and authorities were not releasing details about the accident at Garfield Avenue near the 105 Freeway overpass.

Witnesses told investigators three people fled one of the cars after the crash, said sheriff's Capt. Christy Guyovich. The motorist who died was in the other car, she said.

Authorities were trying to reach the family of the dead motorist, Guyovich said.
