Highway Patrol examines car in hit-run death probe

The N.C. Highway Patrol says it is examining a car in connection with a hit-and-run incident that killed a man early Monday in Hickory.

Troopers say no charges have been filed, and they are not sure if the vehicle they located is the same car involved in the fatality on U.S. 321.

A man who apparently was walking southbound on the divided highway died when he was struck by a car that left the scene, troopers say. The incident took place a short distance south of Interstate 40.

It is not clear exactly what time the man died, but his body was spotted by passing motorists shortly before 7 a.m. The victim’s name has not been released.
