Fort Worth police are asking the public for help identifying the driver of a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run in late June. The victim died this week.

Hugh Walker, 64, died after he was hit by a vehicle on West Seminary Drive, police said. He had been trying to cross the street on foot.

Officers responded to the 2500 block of West Seminary Drive at 9:48 p.m. on June 28 for a reported hit-and-run, police said. A vehicle had struck Walker, police said, and the driver fled the scene, failing to stop and help.

Walker was transported to a local hospital, where he died from his injuries on Sunday, according to police and the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office.

At this time, police said there’s no description of the vehicle or the suspect. Anyone who witnessed the hit-and-run is asked to speak with detectives to aid in the investigation.
