PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Police say a 36-year-old man was struck and killed in a hit-and-run in North Philadelphia on Monday night. The incident happened around 10 p.m. on the 2900 block of North Broad Street.
Police say the victim was crossing the street when he was struck by an SUV. Witnesses told police the man was crossing underneath a bridge, where there are no crosswalks.
The man suffered severe head trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene.
There were several car parts left at the scene police hope to use to track down the SUV.
“We also found some businesses in the immediate area that do have exterior surveillance cameras. So, accident investigators are contacting those business owners to see if those recordings recorded anything that can help us with this fatal hit-and-run auto accident,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.
The striking car is described as a newer model gray or silver SUV with a possible New York license plate.
Call police if you know anything about the hit-and-run.
