    A 100-year-old Asian American man was killed in an early morning hit-and-run in Oakland, California, over the weekend.

    Police are now searching for the suspect behind the recent incident, which reportedly took place at the intersection of 19th St. and Harrison Street after 7 a.m. on Sunday.

    The area reportedly sees thousands of people walking around every day. Snow Park and Lake Merritt are in the same vicinity.

    According to reports, the centenarian, whose identity is being withheld until his family is notified, was crossing the intersection when a white or tan Mini Cooper struck him.

    A video reportedly filmed after the collision shows that his body ended up around 35 feet from where he was hit.

    The victim suffered severe head trauma. He reportedly received treatment at the scene before being taken to a hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries.

    Investigation into the case continues. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Oakland Police Department Traffic Investigation Unit at (510) 777-8570.
