Deputies are looking for the driver of a car, possibly a Bentley, that struck and killed a  21-year-old woman on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood.

The woman was crossing Sunset at Hammond Street about 11:50 p.m. Wednesday when she was hit by a luxury car, said Sgt. Chris Tatar of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The driver fled in the car, and debris found at the scene suggested the vehicle could have been a dark-colored Bentley, he said.

The unidentified woman is believed to have been walking in a crosswalk, Tatar said.

Investigators were interviewing witnesses Thursday and trying to locate video of the incident to identify the vehicle, Tatar said.
