Philadelphia police are looking for the public's help in finding the driver involved in a fatal hit-and-run early Saturday morning.

It was around 5:00 a.m. when someone called 911 for a man in the roadway on American Street just south of Lehigh Avenue.

The 28-year-old man was rushed by medics to Temple University Hospital with multiple injuries. However, at that point, police didn't know what had happened to him.

The man died later that day and his body was sent to the medical examiner's office, who determined the victim died from being hit by a car.

Unfortunately, police said, the driver left the scene without leaving any evidence behind. Now, investigators are hoping someone can give them a lead.

Anyone with information can call the Accident Investigation Division at 215-685-3180. Tips can be made anonymously.

The victim has been identified, but police are not releasing his name as they work to track down his family to make notification.
