A pedestrian was hit and killed by a driver who took off after the crash early Sunday morning at Southeast 29th and Stark Street. 

Emergency crews responded at 2:06 a.m. and found a 34-year-old man suffering from traumatic injuries. He was taken to the hospital and later pronounced dead.

The car will possibly have front end damage and a broken windshield.
