Suffolk County police are looking for a hit-and-run driver who struck and killed a man and injured three others Friday night on a dark residential street in Medford.

The fleeing driver hit the man, his two passengers and a woman who had stopped for an earlier crash, Suffolk County Detective Sgt. James Madden said.

The first crash occurred shortly after 8 p.m. when a vehicle crashed into a parked car on Granny Road, just east of Fairmont Avenue, police said.

Three men got out of the car to assess the damage. They were joined by a woman who owns the parked car when the fleeing vehicle heading east on Granny crashed into them and propelling the vehicles into a second parked car.

Madden said the man who hit the parked car was struck and killed at the scene. The woman who owned the parked car was seriously injured and the two passengers also suffered less serious injuries, Madden said. All three were taken to a hospital to be treated.

The hit-and-run driver fled, speeding east on Granny.

Police do not have a description of the driver, but Suffolk County vehicle crime unit detectives and crime scene investigators were reconstructing the crash and collecting evidence. Police were interviewing all of the residents on the block.

Police ask anyone with information to call the Suffolk County Vehicle Crime unit at 631-852-6555.
