The Clinton Police Department is searching for the driver of an unknown vehicle that hit and killed a 39-year-old man riding a motorized bicycle on Clinch Avenue early Saturday.
The crash was reported at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday near Portwood Road, the Clinton Police Department said. That intersection is in south Clinton, a short drive from downtown Clinton on Clinch Avenue (Clinton Highway).
The person who called 911 found the victim, Jordan Pitts, in the road, the CPD said. Pitts died later.
Police do not have a suspect vehicle yet, and there were no witnesses.
“The driver involved fled the scene,” the CPD said.
If you have information to share, the CPD asks you to call Detective Sergeant Scott Gregory at (865) 259-1209.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
