State troopers are searching for the driver of an SUV in connection with a fatal hit-and-run involving a pedestrian on U.S. 61, south of I-10, in Ascension Parish.

The crash claimed the life of 49-year-old Patrick Lester of St. Francisville. 

Shortly before 4:00 p.m. yesterday, Louisiana State Police Troop A responded to the scene after Lester was fatally struck by a Magna Steel (gray) 2012-2015 GMC Terrain while walking on the northbound side of U.S. 61, according to a Troop A spokesman.

Troopers say the suspect vehicle should have significant damage to the front right side and missing the passenger's side mirror.

Anyone with any information regarding the crash is urged to contact Louisiana State Police Troop A at 225-754-8500.

The crash remains under investigation.
