Spokane Police Department spokesperson Julie Humphreys said police were called shortly before 5 a.m. to a report of a male laying motionless in the roadway near Maxwell Avenue and Lincoln Street.
A vehicle apparently struck the pedestrian and then left the scene.
No additional details were immediately available.
