Police in East Point are looking for two cars in connection with a hit-and-run who left a man dead on Saturday, officials said.
Officers responded to Cleveland Avenue and Springdale Road and found that a man had been hit and died on site Saturday morning.
The man struck a block on the road, at the intersection of Cleveland Avenue and Sylvan Road, said the East Point Police Department in a statement.
A witness said Channel 2 Action News as the victim was drawn down the street. Wilbur Yancy said he saw the body and blocked it with his car so nobody else would hit it.
He then called 911 and watched video surveillance from a nearby gas station with the police, he told the news station.
“They watched the camera, and I watched that too,” he told Channel 2. “You could see a pretty good description” of the cars.
Two cars involved in the crash had left the scene, police said.
The authorities are looking for a 2009 Ford Fusion with left front end damage and a missing left mirror and an older model green Buick Century.
Fulton County Medical Examiner Office said the victim was a man. He has not been identified.
Anyone who has information about the fatal crash is invited to contact Detective Ebony Bullock at 404-270-7069 or Crime Stoppers at 404-577 TIPS (8477).
