Now Erie Police are trying to track down the driver of the car in the vehicular homicide case.
Around 7:20pm police and ambulance crews were called to the 1500 block of Liberty Street for reports of a pedestrian hit by a vehicle.
They found a man lying in the street bleeding from his head, but the car that hit him fled the scene.
The man was transported to UPMC Hamot.
Witnesses said the victim was crossing Liberty Street and the car was last seen heading south on Liberty with possible moderate to heavy front end damage.
Anyone with information regarding a sedan-type vehicle, possibly red or maroon, with recent front end damage is asked to call Cpl. Anthony Letkevicz at 870-1171 or the officer in charge at 870-1120.
There is no other description of the car.
