LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The victim of a hit-and-run in downtown Louisville has died.

The driver of the SUV continued driving to work before contacting police.

The name of the man has not been released. The woman he was with was not injured.

The LMPD Traffic Unit is turning the case over to the Commonwealth Attorney's Office to determine any possible charges.
