DOVER, Del. - Delaware State Police are releasing a possible vehicle description that was involved in a fatal hit-and-run in Dover.
Authorities say 38-year-old Curt Burns was attempting to cross the southbound lanes of Route 13 from west to east at around 8 p.m. on February 19, when he was hit by the vehicle and thrown onto the southbound shoulder, just south of South Governors Avenue.
Police say Burns was transported by EMS to Kent General Hospital that night with serious injuries. He died the next morning.
Investigators now say it is possible that a late model Ford passenger car hit and killed Burns.
Police are continuing to search for the driver involved in the hit-and-run. The night of the crash, troopers went door to door, from businesses to homes, looking for information or witnesses in Dover.
Southbound Route 13 was closed for approximately two hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Troop 3 CRU at (302) 697-4454, ext. 215, or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333. Information may also be provided to www.tipsubmit.com.
