State Police are searching for a vehicle and driver involved in a fatal hit and run crash on La 429 in Ascension Parish.

Troopers responded to a vehicle crash involving a pedestrian on La 429 west of La 431 on August 28 shortly before 8:00 pm.

The crash claimed the life of 39-year-old Anthony Graham of Gonzales.

A preliminary investigation revealed that the crash occurred as Graham was walking on LA 429 approximately 3 feet from the edge of the roadway.

At the same time, a suspected Nissan Altima entered the curve and traveled off the roadway and struck Graham.

Troopers say the impact caused Graham to be thrown into the front yard of a nearby residence. Graham succumbed to his injuries on September 2.

Based off of evidence collected on the scene, Troopers say they believe the vehicle that struck Graham is a 2008-2013 Grey Nissan Altima.

The Altima would have damage to the right front headlight and missing the passenger side mirror, troopers say.
