ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis police say a pedestrian was killed after he was hit by a vehicle that then fled the scene.

Investigators say the victim died at a hospital shortly after being struck shortly 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.

KMOV-TV reports that authorities are looking for a mid-2000s white Pontiac G-6 with tinted windows.

Other details were not immediately available.

It’s 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.
