Hemet police today were searching for a motorist who ran over and killed a man on the east end of the city, fleeing the location before officers arrived.

The hit-and-run occurred about 11:55 p.m. Wednesday on Florida Avenue, near Girard Street, according to Sgt. Dan Reinbolt.

The victim, whose name was not released, was attempting to cross Florida Avenue when the driver of a sports car, possibly a silver Pontiac Grand Am or Grand Prix, came barreling down the eastbound side of the four-lane road and slammed into the man, Reinbolt said.

The motorist sped away toward Valle Vista and could not be found by patrol officers.

A witness summoned paramedics and went to the victim's aid, attempting to perform CPR until emergency crews arrived, according to Reinbolt. However, the man died at the scene.
