A 71-year-old man died Wednesday night after a vehicle hit him and fled the scene, police said.
The vehicle struck the man about 9:30 p.m. in the 3300 block of South Collins Street, police said in a news release Thursday. The man was trying to cross the street at East Mayfield Road, but it appeared that he was not in the crosswalk when the southbound vehicle hit him, according to the news release.
He has been identified as Nghi Pham of Arlington.
A witness told police that the vehicle stopped briefly and drove away.
Investigators are searching for a newer-model pickup with a lift kit, possibly with dark window tint and chrome rims and damage to the front headlights area.
