Male model in Perry promo dies

A male model who appeared in a Katy Perry music video was killed after he was struck by a car in the early hours of Saturday (02Apr11).

Eric Zentner, who appeared in the promo clip for Perry's Hot n Cold single, was hit after getting out of his car on the California 101 freeway.

The 30 year old was said to have been walking to a nearby farm for help after running out of gas.

Authorities are now looking for the driver of a light blue Dodge Caravan believed to be responsible for the accident.

A spokesperson says, "It was a hit-and-run accident. It's an ongoing investigation. We don't know what happened. So far, no one has come forward."

Zentner modelled for designers such as Versace, Marc Jacobs and Gucci, and also appeared in a music video for rockers No Doubt.
