The initial on-scene investigation revealed a 20-year-old man was walking westbound on the North Marietta Parkway, in the far right, right turn only lane, according to police.
The man was struck from behind by a Kia Spectra, which left the scene of the crash, police said.
Police said they are looking for a 2007-09 four-door Spectra, either a hatchback or coupe model, with right side passenger front end damage.
The man was transported to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital via Metro Ambulance, where he was pronounced dead. At this time, there are no known witnesses to this crash, police said.
Police have not yet identified the victim because his family had not been reached as of Friday evening.
“Next of kin notification is still pending,” said Officer David Auld with Marietta Police. “There are no leads on this case.”
Anyone with any information regarding the hit and run is urged to call Officer Geoff Culpepper at 770-794-5357.
