Huntington Beach police Tuesday asked for the public’s help tracking down a suspect in a fatal hit-and-run collision in January.

The police released more details about the vehicle involved in the collision that killed 29-year-old pedestrian Jacob Andrew Conroy of Midway City on Jan. 24.

Police are looking for a full-sized SUV with dark tinted windows similar to a newer-model Chevrolet Tahoe or Cadillac Escalade, according to Lt. Brian Smith of the Huntington Beach Police Department.

The SUV was going southbound on Goldenwest Street north of Oxford Drive when it struck Conroy, who was crossing outside of a crosswalk, Smith said. The driver fled the scene and Conroy was pronounced dead at the scene, Smith added.

A second vehicle struck Conroy, but that driver stopped and cooperated with investigators.

The suspect vehicle is believed to have sustained moderate front-end collision damage, Smith said.

Anyone with information was asked to contact investigators at 714-536-5231 or 536-5670. Orange County Crime Stoppers will accept anonymous tips at 855-TIP-OCCS.
