by Associated Press

WEST POINT, Ga. (AP) — Georgia state troopers are asking for the public's help in locating a vehicle and driver suspected of being involved in a deadly hit-and-run accident that left a pedestrian dead in west Georgia.

Officials say the crash happened around 2:45 a.m. Monday on Interstate 85 in Harris County, near the exit to West Point, Georgia, and just across the Alabama line.

No details about the male pedestrian were immediately available.

The Georgia State Patrol said in a statement that investigators believe the man was struck by a Pontiac Grand Prix, with a model year between 1997 and 2003.

They say the car may be either a 2- or 4-door model, and will have damage to the right front corner and windshield. The vehicle may also be missing the right-side passenger window.
