ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- It's a story it seems we've heard far too often this year. Another person is dead after being run over by a car that never even stopped to see if the person was okay.

It happened just before 6pm Saturday near 15th and Charles. Rockford Police aren't sure if the man, who was in his late 20's, was crossing the street or walking down it when he was hit.

Officers are looking for a dark colored four door vehicle. If you have any information call Rockford Police or Crime Stoppers.
