OKTIBBEHA COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — Mississippi state troopers say they need the public’s help, after a man was killed in a hit and run early Sunday morning.
The accident happened around 4 a.m. on U.S. Highway 82 West near Center Grove.
MHP says the victim was walking in the west bound lanes, and struck by an unidentified vehicle that left the scene.
Troopers say they found some debris, but they’re still trying to figure out what type of vehicle was involved.
Officials say there was another car in the area, but they can’t confirm yet if it belonged to the victim until they can positively identify him.
They believe he was from out of state, and hope to release his name, Monday.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Mississippi Highway Patrol’s Starkville office at (662) 323-5314, or local law enforcement.
