    Philadelphia police are on the hunt for a hit and run driver. A pizza deliveryman is on life support after he was struck Wednesday in Feltonville. NBC10's Rosemary Connors spoke with his grieving family.

    A pizza deliveryman struck by a hit-and-run driver Wednesday was taken off life support Thursday as the search for his alleged killer continued.

    Lou Andro, 45, died Thursday around 5:30 p.m. after being hit about 25 hours outside the Feltonville pizza shop that his parents once owned.

    Andro was standing outside Wyoming Pizza at Whitaker Avenue and Wyoming Street around 4:30 p.m. when a four-door dark sedan hit him -- sending him 50 feet through the air, according to Philadelphia Police.

    The driver of the car sped off. 

    Andro suffered severe head trauma and was taken to Temple University Hospital where he later died, police said.

    Police were looking at surveillance video hoping to learn more about the car that hit Andro. Police say they are looking for a dark sedan with front end damage and maybe right passenger side damage.

    Anyone with information on this deadly crash should contact Philadelphia Police.
