PHOENIX — The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in identifying the driver involved in a fatal hit-and-run crash involving two pedestrians in south Phoenix.
The incident happened just before 11 p.m. Sunday near 35th and Southern avenues when a vehicle collided with a man and a woman, MCSO said.
The pedestrians were taken to a hospital, where the man later died, authorities said. The woman had injuries that weren’t life-threatening.
The suspect vehicle is thought to be a silver, white or light-colored SUV, possibly a Dodge Journey or Chrysler Pacifica, MCSO said.
“Evidence found suggests the vehicle should have damage to the front end, possibly the grill, hood and windshield,” Sgt. Monica Bretado said in a press release.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact MCSO at 602-876-1011 or MCSO tips at 602-876-8477.
