Merced police are searching for a driver who they said hit a pedestrian, then got out of his car and moved the victim before driving away.

It happened on 16th near O Street just after 10:00 Friday night.

Investigators said after the man moved the victim away from his car he pulled into a parking lot. But a few minutes later he drove past the man on the ground and did nothing to help him.

The victim died at the scene.

The suspect's car is described as a newer Dodge Dart with five spoke rims, a rear spoiler, and possible damage to the front right side.

Anyone with information is asked to call Merced police.
