Reading police search for driver in fatal hit-and-run

- Reading police say a driver struck and killed a 58-year-old man just before 6 a.m. Tuesday. On the surveillance photos, the vehicle appears to be bright yellow.

Aida Santos lives at the corner of 8th and Walnut in Reading  where the alleged hit-and-run took place.

She often keeps an eye on the traffic coming and going at the busy intersection right outside her door, but she’s never seen that type of car before—as yellow as the school buses that pass by her stoop.

“At that time, there’s kids going to school, cross and people going to work," she said.

The victim survived the initial hit but died the next day. Police say the car in the photos may have front end or driver side damage. They are hoping someone recognizes the distinct crossover type vehicle.

If you have any information, please call Reading police.
