PLEASANT HILLS (AP) — Police are trying to find the driver in a hit-and-run that left a pedestrian dead near Pittsburgh.
Allegheny County homicide detectives say Pleasant Hills police were alerted to a man lying in the road about 9:50 p.m. Thursday. The county medical examiner has identified him as 43-year-old David Ruiz, of Carnegie.
Results of an autopsy Friday were pending.
But police say it appears Ruiz was hit by a vehicle and died after being taken to a hospital.
Police believe the vehicle that hit Ruiz has front-end and side damage and perhaps a cracked windshield.
