CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Police are asking for the public's help locating the suspected vehicle in a deadly hit-and-run in east Charlotte last month.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police were called to a crash involving a pedestrian in the 5000 block of The Plaza, near Aintree Road, around 6 p.m. on Nov. 4. When officers got to the area, they found a person lying in the road who had been hit by a car.
The victim, identified as 60-year-old Van Hai Nguyen, was rushed to a hospital with serious injuries. Nguyen died on Dec. 1 from injuries sustained in the crash.
