PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police say they want to talk to the owner of a sport utility vehicle believed to have been involved in a hit-and-run crash in northeast Philadelphia that killed one person and injured another.

Officials say a car was struck by the SUV at about 10:40 p.m. Sunday in the Juniata section of the city. Police said the passenger in the car was pronounced dead at a hospital and the driver was taken to a hospital with injuries said not to be life-threatening.

Police said the SUV left the scene but officers later located the vehicle believed to have been involved. They said the vehicle has heavy front-end damage, and want to talk to the registered owner to find out who was driving.


This version corrects that passenger of car was killed and driver was injured, rather than driver killed and passenger injured.
