PHOENIX (AP) — Police are searching for the driver of a vehicle involved in a fatal hit-and-run in north-central Phoenix.

The incident occurred around 9 p.m. Saturday near Interstate 17.

Police say when officers arrived on the scene, 50-year-old Robert Bennett was prone on a street with injuries.

He was rushed to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Witnesses told police that Bennett stepped out onto the road to see if he could see a bus coming before he was struck by a sedan that did not stop.

Police said they're working off witness descriptions of the four-door sedan in hope of locating the driver.
