Atlanta Police are looking for the driver involved in a deadly hit-and-run in Buckhead overnight.

Police say an unidentified man was struck and killed by a car on Roswell Road, north of Powers Ferry, just after midnight. 

According to witnesses, the victim appeared to be drunk and lay down in the street. A dark-colored sedan heading north on Roswell Road then struck him and kept on going.

Investigators say the driver had to know that he or she hit someone. They hope the public can help identify the vehicle, admitting their current description is vague.

Witnesses tell FOX 5 the victim may have been at the nearby Johnny's Hideaway nightclub. That information had yet to be confirmed by police. 

Police plan to look at surveillance video to determine the victim's actions before he was hit and hopefully get more details about the car that struck him.
