Subject:Traffic Unit investigating fatal hit-and-run crash

BPD Traffic Officers are investigating a fatal hit-and-run crash that occurred sometime last night in the 8000 block of Hwy 69 North near Park North Drive. 

At about 6:52 am this morning, two passers-by called 911 to report a body lying in the grassy median that separates the northbound side of the freeway from the service road.  When Patrol Officers arrived, they found a 23-year-old man deceased.  It appears that a vehicle struck the man as he walked northbound along the shoulder of the freeway.  More information on the victim will be available once we notify his next of kin. 

Judge Beaulieu responded and ordered an autopsy.  Our Traffic Unit, with the assistance of our Crime Scene Unit, will continue to investigate this crash to identify the person responsible for this young man's death.
