PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Phoenix police are searching for the driver accused of a hit-and-run after a man was killed in central Phoenix late Thursday night.
Officers responded to the area of 24th Drive and Grand Avenue, just south of Thomas Road, around 10 p.m. Police say a man was walking when he was hit by a car’s mirror, knocking him to the ground.
