Death in hit-and-run accident

Posted By on Wed, May 25, 2011 at 12:23 PM

Little Rock police say Billy Joe Morris, 53, was found dead about 11 p.m. Tuesday on 36th Street, just west of Ludwig, possible victim of a hit-and-run accident.

A witness said she was westbound on 36th when she saw a man lying in the street and she stopped to task if he needed help. Shortly after, a small gold car that resembled a Neon, hit the man in the eastbound lane and did not stop. It's not clear from the initial report if the man responded to the woman who stopped to help. Police are seeking anyone who might have additional information. The number is 918-5100.
