LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles police are searching for the person that hit and killed a 92-year-old Holocaust survivor while he was walking his dog.

Bolotsky came to the U.S. after he escaped the Nazi occupation of Ukraine.

The vehicle appears to be a white truck with a camper shell. No other information is known at this time about the suspect.
