Posted August 26, 2012
Durham, N.C. — A 34-year-old Durham man died early Sunday after being hit by a car while walking in the 2900 block of Holloway street.
According to police, Israel Lopez was walking across the road around 2:30 a.m. when he was hit. Lopez died at the scene.
Police said they found the four-door sedan that hit Lopez Sunday morning in a Food Lion parking lot a few miles away. It's unclear if the car was stolen.
Lopez's friends told WRAL News Sunday evening that he was a good man who worked hard.
"All I can tell you is that he was a real good friend," Rene Mata said. "He went to work every day, he worked hard and took care of his friends."
No other details were released. Anyone with information about the hit-and-run should call Durham Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200.
