MIDLAND - Midland Police are searching for a vehicle involved in a deadly car-pedestrian accident that happened on Wednesday night.

The accident happened just before midnight at the intersection of North Midland Drive and Neely Avenue.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found citizens performing CPR on 27-year-old Francisco Iglecias.

An investigation into the accident revealed that a black Chevrolet Camaro was traveling southbound in the outside lane and a green SUV was traveling southbound in the inside lane, both of which faced a green light while Iglecias was walking in a crosswalk on Midland Drive.

We're told Iglecias was struck by the green SUV, knocking him to the ground and then was run over by the black Camaro. 

Officials say the green SUV fled the scene of the accident and is believed to have damage to the front right portion of the vehicle.

Iglecias was pronounced dead at the scene.

If you have any information on the green SUV, you're asked to contact Midland Police at (432) 685-7108.
