CATHEDRAL CITY, Calif. — A pedestrian died after being struck by two drivers that fled the scene, and an ambulance.

Teodoro Torres was hit by an SUV on Ramon Road. As he remained in the street he was also struck by an ambulance that had responded to another hit-and-run a short distance away. It was transporting a bicyclist to a hospital when it ran over Torres, California Highway Patrol told The Desert Sun

As crews were calling in the accident to continue to the hospital with the bicyclist, the pedestrian was hit by another vehicle whose driver also fled. Investigators are searching for that vehicle, described as a dark-colored sedan.

Torres died at Desert Regional Medical Center.
