St. Louis pedestrian killed by hit-and-run driver identified
ST. LOUIS _ St. Louis police say they’ve identified a pedestrian killed after he was hit by a vehicle that then fled the scene. Investigators say 29-year-old Nathaniel Thomas died at a hospital shortly after being struck after 5 p.m. Sunday in Fairground Park.
Police Lt. Paul Lauer says witnesses reported that the suspect may have been driving twice as fast as the posted 25-mph speed limit when the wreck happened.
Authorities are looking for a white Pontiac G-6 with tinted windows. Other details were not immediately available.
It was the second fatal hit-and-run in or near the park in the past month. A woman was hit and killed last month while crossing a street near the park.
