FOUNTAIN, Colo. (AP) Authorities say a man found dead in a Fountain street may have been struck by a hit-and-run vehicle.

The body was found Saturday night shortly after Fountain police received a report that a drunken man was walking in front of vehicles, apparently trying to be hit.

Officers were searching for the man when the body was found.

Police haven't released the man's name. They say he was in his early 20s.

Investigators are asking the public's help in identifying any driver or vehicle involved.
