ABSECON — Police are looking for a driver who hit a pedestrian overnight and left the scene, police said.

Officers were dispatched to the Delilah Road overpass at 12:24 a.m. Sunday to find a 73-year-old Philadelphia man had been hit by a car while walking on the eastbound shoulder of the road.

The car, described as a silver SUV that may have been a Honda Pilot, hit the man and continued driving east onto Absecon Boulevard toward Atlantic City, police said.

Traffic at the scene was slowed for about two hours while the crash was investigated, police said. The Absecon Police Department is asking anyone with knowledge of the accident to call 609-641-0667.

Sgt. J. Mazer of the Traffic Safety Unit is investigating the crash.
