WORCESTER, Mass. — An elderly man was struck and killed early Saturday morning in Worcester by a van that fled the scene, police say.

Worcester police say they responded at 2:48 a.m. to a McDonald’s at 995 Main St, where the 83-year-old Worcester resident was lying on the northbound curb. He was taken to a local hospital where he died of his injuries.

The victim was crossing Main Street from the direction of Marble Street when he was hit by a van that fled the scene without stopping, according to police. Authorities say the vehicle is described as a Dodge Caravan or Chrysler Town & Country, possible a 2002 to 2007 model. The van was a dark color and may have damage to the front hood and windshield, police say.

Anyone with information is asked to call Worcester police at 508-799-8651.
