TUCSON, Ariz. — A 72-year-old man died from injuries Thursday night after a hit-and-run in South Tucson Thursday morning.

The South Tucson Police Department says Ramon Silv sustained life-threatening injuries and was rushed to the hospital. He later passed away late Thursday night.

According to the South Tucson Police Department, it happened at 10:11 a.m. at the intersection of 6th Avenue and 30th Street. The man was walking in a crosswalk when a car hit him, turned into a McDonald's parking lot, then sped off up 5th Avenue, heading north.

Officers later found the car's bumper, which helped them determine the car to be a 1998 to 2000 Mazda 626. It was last seen speeding north up Herbert Avenue near 18th Street.

Officers from the Tucson Police Department and STPD searched the area, but couldn't find the car.

Anyone with information should call STPD or 911.
