The victim of a hit-and-run accident in December died Tuesday from his injuries, Tucson police said.

Police identified the man as David L. Hamilton, 55.

Hamilton was hit by a vehicle on Dec. 19 as he was walking on West Drexel Road just west of South Liberty Avenue. The vehicle involved fled the scene, police said at the time.

Hamilton was taken to a hospital with critical injuries, police said at the time.

Detectives in early January located the vehicle involved and police said Tuesday they have a person of interest in the case, according to a police news release.

No arrests have been made in the case.
