Phoenix police say the hit-and-run crash was reported Thursday night in the 2400 block of West Grand Avenue.

PHOENIX — A man was killed Thursday night in Phoenix after he was struck by two vehicles traveling along Grand Avenue, police say. 

The victim first got knocked to the ground after he was hit by the mirror of a moving vehicle. An unknown sedan then ran over the wounded man, resulting in his death. 

Phoenix police have not identified the deceased and investigators are still attempting to identify the drivers involved. 

A couple of hours before the fatal hit-and-run on Grand Avenue, Phoenix police responded to a similar collision near 91st Avenue and Palm Lane. 

At about 8 p.m., a woman was fatally hit by a truck that then fled the scene.
