A 34-year-old man has been killed after being run over by a vehicle which fled the scene.
Omaha police identify the victim as Anh Tuan Phan of Omaha.
Police report officers rushed to 72nd and W. Center early Monday morning, responding to a call about a vehicle-pedestrian wreck. Officers found Phan in the right hand curb lane of northbound 72nd Street. The vehicle, believed to be a late model Chevrolet Silverado pick-up with extended or crew cab, had fled the scene.
A firefighter rescue squad took Phan to Bergan Mercy Hospital, but he was pronounced dead upon arrival.
The crash remains under investigation. If anyone has information on the crash or the whereabouts of the pick-up, they are urged to call the Omaha Police Traffic Unit at 402-444-5627. The late model Chevy pick-up should have damage to the grill and passenger side headlight assembly.
