Clinton Police are looking for the individual who fled the scene of a fatal hit-and-run early Saturday morning.
CPD says that at around 3:30 am Saturday, a 39-year-old man operating a motorized bicycle was headed north on Clinch Avenue near Portwood Road when he was struck by an as-of-yet-unidentified vehicle and dragged about 300 feet. The man, who was identified by family members as 39-year-old Jordan Pitts—who had been on his way to work at the Hardees in South Clinton—died from his injuries at an area hospital later in the day. The driver who struck him left the scene, and police said over the weekend that they do not have a vehicle description and that so far, no witnesses have come forward.
On Sunday, friends and members of Jordan Pitts’ family stood by the side of Clinch Avenue near the crash scene with signs imploring passing drivers to call the police if they have any information at all that could lead investigators to the identification and arrest of whoever is responsible for his death.
If you do have any information at all, please call Clinton Police Department Detective Sergeant Gregory at 865-259-1209.
