RALEIGH — Police will survey drivers Saturday night as they continue to seek information about a deadly hit-and-run accident Aug. 3 near downtown Raleigh.
Officers will be stopping cars and passing out flyers on South Pettigrew Street from 8:30 to 10 p.m., soliciting tips about the car that hit 26-year-old Dwight Emory Smith. Police think he was lying on the pavement of the side street off New Bern Avenue when a car struck him and drove off. Smith was taken to WakeMed, where he died.
Investigators still haven’t found the car or its driver, and they’re hoping drivers who pass through Pettigrew Street on Saturday nights might be able to help.
Police ask anyone with information that might help them locate the vehicle or its driver to either call Raleigh CrimeStoppers at 919-834-4357 or to go to the CrimeStoppers Web site at www.raleighcrimestoppers.org for instructions on how to report a tip online or by text message.
