PHOENIX — Police detectives are investigating a hit-and-run that left a man dead in northwest Phoenix early Saturday morning, authorities said.

Officers responded to the area of Glendale and 35th avenues to reports of a vehicle collision just before 4 a.m. They found 58-year-old Andrew Pyles unresponsive on the ground, the Phoenix Police Department said in a press release.

Pyles was pronounced dead by Phoenix Fire Department personnel after life saving measures were unsuccessful, authorities said.

Witnesses said a black colored, full-sized SUV — believed to be a Chevrolet Tahoe — struck the victim and drove off, authorities said.

The vehicle was allegedly traveling westbound on Glendale Avenue and Pyles was walking north while crossing the road.

Anybody with information was asked to call the Phoenix Police Department at 602-262-6151 or, to remain anonymous, Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS (948-6377) or 480-TESTIGO (837-8446) for Spanish.

We want to hear from you.
