A 58-year-old man was hit and killed by a vehicle whose driver didn’t stop afterward Saturday night on Earhart Boulevard, New Orleans police said.
The victim was trying to cross Earhart at South Galvez Street around 8:15 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, when a southbound vehicle in the left lane hit him, according to a NOPD report. The pedestrian was seriously injured and pronounced dead before he could be taken to the hospital, the report states.
“The driver of the vehicle failed to stop and render aid or request medical assistance for the victim,” the report states. “Investigators believe the vehicle should have damage to the front end and possibly a smashed windshield.”
Anyone with information that could help locate the vehicle is urged to call the Traffic Fatality Unit at 504-658-6208 to speak to Detective Michael Baldassaro, or Crimestoppers at 822-1111 to leave an anonymous tip that could be eligible for a cash reward.
