The police accident investigation division is investigating a fatal accident that took place Monday night on the 7500 block of Roosevelt Blvd.
Police said the accident happened about 6:55 p.m. A preliminary investigation revealed that a 2010 Acura was traveling south in the outer lanes of the Boulevard when it struck a 1998 Nissan and a pedestrian.
The pedestrian was standing by his disabled Nissan. He was transported by a fire department medic unit to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 7:54 p.m.
The victim was later identified as Leonid Kadomshy, a 37-year-old from the 1500 block of Gregg St. An occupant of the Nissan complained of head pain but declined medical attention.
The occupants of the Acura fled the scene westbound on Faunce Street. One was described as a black male wearing a tan jacket. A female passenger later turned herself in.
Both vehicles were towed by police.
