Police could not find the suspect vehicle or any witnesses to the crash. They said there might be video surveillance on a home in the area; however, due to the time of the crash, knocks on doors went unanswered. 

The man has not been identified at this time, and he has been taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy. 

Investigators with the New Haven Crash Reconstruction Team are searching for evidence and video surrounding the fatal hit-and-run. 

Anyone who witnessed this crash or may have information valuable to the investigators is urged to contact police via phone at 203-946-6304 or through the department's anonymous tip-line at 866-888-TIPS (8477).
