Wilmington police say they found the minivan involved in a hit-and-run on the same day that the pedestrian struck by the vehicle died of his injuries.

Fifty-nine-year-old Patrick Dempsey was struck on the morning of Nov. 14.

Police say he tried to cross a street into oncoming traffic and was hit by a car.

Then the minivan hit him as he fell to the ground, and the driver did not stop. Dempsey was hospitalized, and police say he died of his injuries on Thursday evening.

Meanwhile, police said they found the minivan at the intersection of 4th and Washington streets, less than a mile from the site of the collision, on Thursday afternoon.

No arrests have been made.
