Hit-run Victim Dies of Injuries in Reno

An elderly Reno man who was struck by a hit-and-run driver earlier this month has died of his injuries.

Police are still looking for the driver who hit 87-year-old George Carne on May 10 as he was crossing the street near South Arlington and Plumb Lane.

Carne died Monday night at Renown Regional Medical Center, police said.

Traffic detectives said a dark colored Jeep Cherokee was seen at the time of the accident, possibly swerving around the victim.

Authorities ask anyone with information to contact police or Secret Witness.
