Philadelphia police were searching Sunday for a driver whose vehicle hit a pedestrian and dragged him 500 feet down a street, killing him in the Juniata section of the city.

The victim, whose name and age have not been released by investigators, was found dead at the scene. They believe he was hit just after 2:30 a.m. while walking down the 4200 block of Whitaker Avenue, near its intersection with East Hunting Park Avenue.

Car parts littered the scene, leading police to suspect the vehicle is a dark-colored sedan.
