Police are searching for the drivers behind multiple vehicles that were allegedly involved in a fatal hit-and-run in Pompano Beach Sunday morning.

According to Broward Sheriff's Office, the incident occurred at around 5:45 a.m. near the area of South Cypress Road and Southwest 5th Court.

Alan Warran was reportedly traveling southbound in a white 2008 Ford Escape when he struck a pedestrian who had been walking westbound, crossing South Cypress Road in an area that is not designated as a crosswalk.

Warren stopped his car, got out and approached the pedestrian, who was on the ground. While he scanned the area to find an address he could provide to authorities, three unknown vehicles traveling southbound on the roadway struck the pedestrian multiple times.

Pompano Beach Fire Rescue responded to the incident, and the pedestrian was pronounced dead on the scene.

According to police, Warren remained at the site and cooperated with investigators. Witness statements revealed that at least one of the vehicles who struck the pedestrian and fled had turned around to see what they hit, but continued northbound.

Police noted that it remains unknown which strike from the vehicle was fatal.

There was reportedly poor visibility on the roadway at the time of the accident, as it was dark and raining. Though preliminary evidence suggests speed was not a factor, the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact BSO Traffic Homicide Detective Sean Williams at 954-321-4840. If you wish to remain anonymous, you may contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at browardcrimestoppers.org.
