Investigators are seeking the public's help to find the hit-and-run driver in a crash that killed a 77-year-old man in West Park back in November.

The crash happened just before midnight on Nov. 22 in the 2000 block of South State Road 7, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

Michael Dodsworth, 77, and two passengers were traveling southbound in a 2014 Chrysler 200 on South State Road 7 when Dodsworth attempted to make a left turn into a business plaza, investigators said.

At the same time, a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado was traveling northbound on State Road 7 and struck Dodsworth's vehicle. The driver of the Chevrolet left the scene after the crash, BSO said.

Dodsworth and the two passengers were transported to Memorial Regional Hospital to be treated. Dodsworth, who was listed in critical condition, died shortly after due to his injuries.
