Vancouver Police are investigating a fatal hit-and-run collision that has claimed the life of a pedestrian, and are appealing to the driver to come forward.

Just after 3:00 this morning, a passerby called police after he discovered a man who appeared to have been struck and seriously injured by a vehicle on Kingsway near Glen Drive.

The pedestrian, a 39-year-old Vancouver man, died shortly after being taken to hospital. Information gathered so far indicates that a vehicle was heading east on Kingsway when it struck the pedestrian and then left the scene. The driver has not been identified.
