Phoenix, Arizona—Robert Melvin, age 44, was struck by a car as he crossed the street just east of the intersection of 16th Street and Highland Avenue at about 8:30 p.m. on Saturday.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.  The car’s driver fled the scene.

Phoenix Police Department accident investigators located a car near Seventh Street and Roosevelt that matched the description of the one involved in the hit-and-run after it was involved in another single-car crash.

We extend our condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Melvin over this tragic loss.
