TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson police have identified the pedestrian killed in a hit-and-run crash on Grant Road late Saturday night. Officers are still looking for the driver and their vehicle. They did not give a description of who they are looking for.

According to a news release, they said 74-year-old Conrad Alfonso Iacono II succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the hospital. Traffic investigators said he was crossing Grant Road from south to north near 3525 E. Grant Road, and was not in or near a crosswalk.

Officers said Iacono reached the westbound curb lane when he was struck by an unknown car that drove away. Officers stated that a small dog was also hit about half a block west, possibly by the same vehicle.

Tucson Police said they found Iacono in the roadway, with two citizens performing CPR. He was immediately taken to Banner University Medical Center, where he later died.

Sgt. Kim Bay, spokeswoman for the Tucson Police Department, said Grant Road was closed late last night from Sparkman to Dodge due to the investigation.

TPD said the collision occurred around 11:15 p.m. and had the road closed for several hours.

Bay said anyone with information about the crash should call 911.
