PHOENIX — Authorities are seeking the public’s help for information about the car involved in a fatal New Year’s Eve hit-and-run collision in west Phoenix.

A black 2015-2023 Dodge Challenger heading west on McDowell Road hit a pedestrian between 83rd Avenue and 86th Drive around 11:40 p.m. Sunday and fled the scene, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said.

The victim, who was not identified, died after the collision.
