Memphis police are searching for the driver of a pickup truck involved in a hit-and-run that killed 15-year old Marvin Pirtle Friday night.
Around 11:30 p.m., the teen was riding a bicycle in the curb lane heading east on Chelsea when the vehicle struck him and left the scene.
According to witnesses, a green pickup truck, possibly a GMC model, was also traveling east on Chelsea. It failed to stop after striking Pirtle.
The young victim was transported to The Med, where he later died.
