Police identify pedestrian killed in hit-and-run on Briarcliff Road

- Police have identified the man who was hit and killed earlier this week in DeKalb County. 

Officers said Daniel Rosen was struck early Tuesday morning on Briarcliff Road, near FOX 5 News. Investigators believe he lives in the area, and was walking home at the time of the incident. 

Police blocked off the scene on Briarcliff Road just north of Carol Lane shortly after the incident around 3:35 a.m. They told FOX 5 it appeared as if Rosen was struck by a car near the Briarcrest Townhomes before medics rushed him to a hospital where he died.

Witnesses said the man was walking down the street earlier in the morning. Moments later, a FOX 5 employee reported seeing the same man in the street on her way to work. She called the police for help. She and others said the man had a bloodied head and a large bruise on his back.

Police are still searching for the driver.
