ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. — A man was killed after being struck by two vehicles early Saturday morning, and now police are looking for one of the drivers involved. 

The St. Louis County Police Department is investigating the fatal hit-and-run that occurred in the area of West Florissant Avenue and Dunn Road. They received a call about a motor vehicle accident with a person struck around 12:40 a.m.

Once officers arrived, they found a man suffering from serious, life-threatening injuries. He was taken to a hospital, where he later died. 

He was identified as Michael Dukes, 45, of Florissant.

Investigators believe Dukes was walking across the street when a vehicle traveling southbound on West Florissant Avenue struck him. The victim was then pushed into the path of another vehicle and was hit again, according to police. 

The first person that hit him drove away, police said, while the second driver remained on the scene and is cooperating with the investigation. 

That driver went to the hospital for treatment but was not seriously injured.

Anyone with information is asked to contact St. Louis County Police investigators at 636-529-8210 or CrimeStoppers at 866-371-8477(TIPS).
