Man killed after being struck by 2 hit-and-run vehicles in Tacony. Watch the report from Bob Brooks on Action News at 10 p.m. on Nov. 10, 2018.

Police have released photos of the two cars they believe were involved in a hit-and-run that left a man dead in the city's Tacony section.

Police say a 50-year-old man was struck in the crosswalk at Cottman and Torresdale avenues around 8:30 p.m. Friday.

Authorities have released pictures of a grey Toyota Camry believed to be responsible for hitting the man, as it was turning from Cottman onto Torresdale.

Police say a white woman was behind the wheel of the car.

Fifteen seconds later, police say a dark-colored Mitsubishi Gallant with tinted windows, driven by a Hispanic male, turned right onto northbound Cottman Avenue and also hit the man.

The victim died minutes later. He has not yet been identified.

There is a traffic camera positioned right over the intersection. Police have good surveillance video, and they're hopeful with that video they can find these cars and make a break in this case soon.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
