PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Police accident investigators say they have recovered the striking car involved in Sunday morning hit-and-run in Port Richmond.

Acting on a tip from a person of interest, police recovered the suspected car involved in the fatal accident, but wouldn’t say where the car was found.

William McCue was hit as he was attempting to cross Richmond Street at Sergeant early Sunday morning. McCue, who was walking home after celebrating his 28th birthday, died of multiple injuries at Hahnemann University Hospital.

According to police, a person of interest contacted them late Sunday and police are hoping to talk directly to the individual in the company of his attorney fairly soon.

Investigators say the operator of the hit-run car faces numerous charges, including leaving the scene of an accident and reckless endangerment.
