Fatal hit and run in Lake Charles

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating a fatal hit and run accident.

Deputies responded to the intersection of W. Tank Farm Road and Tuna Lane in Lake Charles around 5:30 a.m. Sunday in reference to a pedestrian-vehicle fatality. The investigation revealed a car traveling east on W. Tank Farm Road struck Justin J. Brown, 26, of Lake Charles. It appears Brown was lying in the middle of the road when struck and killed.

Deputies say the vehicle, described as a white, older model car did not stop after striking Brown.

The deputies investigating the hit and run fatality have determined it is possible the driver of the car did not see Brown lying in the road due to the fog. They say the impact would have been more like hitting a large object.
