The Grant County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a driver suspected of hitting and killing a pedestrian Friday morning between Quincy and Ephrata before speeding away.
Kyle Foreman, spokesman for the sheriff’s office, said deputes were called to the area of Road 9-Northwest and Road 1.5 Northwest, where they found a body lying on the roadway. The man, whose identity has not yet been confirmed by investigators, was declared dead at the scene.
Near the body were pieces from a vehicle, Foreman said, indicating the suspected vehicle likely sustained front end damage.
The sheriff’s office asked anyone with information to call (509) 762-1160 or to send information to email@example.com.
