Police looking for man after pedestrian struck, killed in hit-and-run at Frankford intersection

Hit-and-run suspect sought by Philadelphia police.

A man is dead after police say a driver struck him with his vehicle, then fled the scene last month in Philadelphia's Frankford section.

Police say the suspect was speeding when he fatally hit a 36-year-old pedestrian at Frankford and Glenwood avenues and drove off on November 30.

The suspect continued speeding, hitting a vehicle at the intersection of Frankford and Castor avenues, then fleeing on foot.


Police say he grabbed a light-colored bag from the trunk, but it is unknown what was inside the bag.

The suspect is descried as having a unique braid hairstyle and light beard and mustache. Anyone with information is asked to contact Philadelphia Police.
