The victim of a fatal hit-and-run that took place over the weekend in Evansville has now been identified by the Vanderburgh County Coroner.
The coroner's office says 63-year-old John D. Knight died from multiple blunt force trauma at Deaconess Midtown Hospital after being struck by a vehicle on Sunday.
It all started just after 12:30 a.m. on Sunday when the Evansville Police Department was called to the 1000 block of N. Fulton Avenue after a pedestrian was reportedly hit by a car in the area.
When officers arrived, they found the victim lying in the middle of the street in critical condition.
"Witnesses saw a light color passenger car traveling southbound on Fulton when it struck the victim," EPD said. "The vehicle continued southbound on Fulton after hitting the victim."
EPD is still looking for a suspect in connection to the incident. Anyone with information on the vehicle or its driver is asked to call detectives at 812-436-7979.
