Witnesses told police the victim may have been lying in the street when he was struck, and it's possible the driver didn't realize they hit someone.

Police say the preliminary investigation showed there was no foul play before the incident.

The man was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital, where he later died. Rochester Police identified him as 33-year-old, D-Markos Trammell of Rochester.

Police say the vehicle fled before they arrived on scene, and investigators are still searching for the driver.
