SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are trying to find a driver who hit and killed a 75-year-old man as he crossed a street on the city’s Southeast Side.

Witnesses told police the man had just left a convenience store in the area and was crossing the street in a marked crosswalk when a dark-colored pickup truck hit him.

Police said the truck failed to yield right-of-way to the man and struck him as he neared the median. The driver pulled into the parking lot of a Speedy Cash and assessed the damage to the vehicle just before fleeing, police said.

The vehicle was last seen heading north on Goliad Road.

The driver of the vehicle did not stop or offer any assistance. If found, the driver will face a charge of failing to stop and render aid, police said.

The man killed has not yet been identified.
