DOUGLAS, Ga. (WALB) -- One person is dead in a Coffee County hit-and-run Friday morning.

Coroner Brandon Musgrove confirmed that there was a fatality on Willachoochee Highway, near the Douglas city limits.

Georgia State Patrol (GSP) said that there was a hit and run involving a pedestrian.

GSP officials said they are looking for a gray Chevy four-door truck. The truck is described as having lighting on the front bumper, black rims, a suspension lift and a chrome strip at the bottom of the truck.

GSP says surveillance video helped them gather the description of the vehicle of interest.

The video was collected from four to five businesses along GA 135 and Willacoochee Hwy.

The Georgia State Patrol’s “SCRT” team is investigating.
