LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Authorities sought the public's help today to find two hit-and-run motorists responsible for severely injuring a pedestrian earlier this week in downtown Los Angeles.

The crash was reported about 8:40 p.m. Monday on Main Street, between Olympic Boulevard and 11th Street, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The man was crossing Main Street when he was hit by an unknown vehicle and knocked to the pavement, police said.

``The pedestrian began to crawl towards the east sidewalk of Main Street when a dark-colored, four-door passenger vehicle ran over the pedestrian, and dragged him approximately 15 feet before being dislodged,'' police said.

Both motorists kept going. The injured man was hospitalized in stable condition.

A standing reward of up to $25,000 has been offered by the city of Los Angeles for information that helps solve a non-fatal hit-and-run.

Anyone with information on the case was urged to call LAPD Detective Juan Campos of the Central Traffic Division at 213-833-3713, 877-LAPD-247, or Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS. Tipsters may also use the website
