Lee County -- Around 7:00AM, police found the body of a man lying on the side of U. S. 19 South of the intersection with Forrester Parkway. Police say it appears he was walking along the shoulder of the highway when he was hit.
Authorities do not know what type of vehicle hit him, but they are looking for a vehicle with substantial front end damage.
Chief Deputy Dennis Parker says the person driving the vehicle should've stopped. “Penalty of a hit and run with death involved is pretty serious. If they would have just stopped and called authorities their wouldn't been any trouble at all. So that's kind of sad."
The Georgia State Patrol is trying to determine when he was hit. They are not sure how long he was there, or if he died on impact.
The victim is described as a black man, medium to dark complexion, around 30 years old, 5 foot 8 with dark eyes and hair.
If you have any information, please contact the Georgia State Patrol at 229-430-4248.
