A young man has died following a hit-and-run incident in Liverpool on Friday night.
The 24-year-old, originally from Northern Ireland, was visiting the city for a stag party when he was struck by a grey BMW on The Strand near to the Hilton Hotel at about 11.40pm.
According to The Liverpool Echo, the driver of the car sped off southbound away from the city as passersby rushed to help the man.
Paramedics arrived on the scene and attended to the victim before taking him to the Royal Liverpool Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Earlier today, police seized a vehicle they believe meets the description of that used in the hit-and-run, and it is currently being examined by detectives.
A full investigation has been launched and authorities are appealing for anyone with information, or anyone who might had dash-cam footage of the incident to come forward.
Inspector Danny Harris from the roads policing unit said: “This is an extremely serious incident in which a young man has tragically died.”
“We need anyone who saw the collision or remembers seeing a grey or silver-coloured BMW in or around this area to come forward.”
The man's identity has not yet been released.
