MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - There is still blood all over the pavement in the 3400 hundred block of Winchester Road.

Police are looking for a hit and run driver who struck a pedestrian around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.

When police responded to a 911 call from 3430 Winchester Road they found a man dead on the sidewalk.

He was struck by a driver that was nowhere to be found on a stretch of Winchester Road that is known for pedestrian traffic.

"Cause we do know several guys who walk in this area kind of late at night, and I'd really like to know who the person is," said nearby salon owner Robert Phillips.

Phillips closed up shop a little early Wednesday night.

"That was real sad. An incident like that, and I wish we would have been here a little later because we might have been able to identify a car or something," he said.

Police have very little to go on and no description of the vehicle involved.

If you have any information that could help police make an arrest call Crime stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
