PD: Few details in deadly hit-and-run near Grand Avenue

PHOENIX - Authorities are looking for details after a man was found dead Friday after apparently being struck by a vehicle which police are calling a hit-and-run.

Phoenix police Sgt. Tommy Thompson said 34-year-old Benjamin Michael Snethen was found in the roadway near 35th and Grand Avenues around 8 p.m. Friday.

He was pronounced deceased by the Phoenix Fire Department, he said.

Thompson said it is believed the victim was hit by a car, but due to a lack of physical evidence a possible vehicle description is not known.

Police also are not sure if the alleged collision actually occurred at the location where the victim's body was found or a different location. The investigating is on-going, he said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Phoenix Police Department at 602-262-6151 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
