**UPDATE ON SEARCH FOR VEHICLE INVOLVED IN FATAL HIT & RUN**

The following information has been learned in the investigation into the fatal pedestrian hit and run accident that occurred Saturday night 2/26/22.

After vehicle parts specialists examined glass fragments and the broken side view mirror left behind at the scene, it was determined that the suspect vehicle should be a Jeep Patriot between the years of 2007-2017. The color is still unknown.

In addition, after the fragments were examined, it was determined that the damage to the suspect vehicle should be to the front and driver side of the vehicle. Passenger side damage was originally reported.

We are asking any person with information to please come forward with a report. You are able to call the Cheektowaga Police Accident Investigation unit at (716) 686-3956.

**ATL A VEHICLE FOR FATAL HIT & RUN*
The Cheektowaga Police are looking for assistance identifying the vehicle and driver involved in a fatal pedestrian hit and run accident last night.

Sometime shortly before 11:45pm Saturday 2/26/22 a yet to be identified male believed to be in his sixties was struck by a vehicle on Clinton St under the Route 90 bridge. The investigation at this point reveals that the male was traveling on the north side of the road on foot with the assistance of a walker when he was struck by a vehicle traveling westbound. The vehicle that struck the victim was not on location and has not been located. A passerby saw the severely injured male in the street and stopped to call police. The victim was transported to ECMC where he later died from his injuries.

Based on the investigation, the suspect vehicle is believed to be a Jeep SUV. Possibly a Patriot or Compass. The damage to the suspect vehicle will be to be to the front and/or passenger side and may have a missing passenger side view mirror.

Any person with information that can assist in the investigation is urged to call the Cheektowaga Police Accident Investigation unit at (716) 686-3956. Or text anonymously to TIP411 (847411) and type CPDNY and then your message.
