Richmond County authorities are investigating a fatal hit-and-run over the weekend that left one teenager dead and another seriously injured.

Sgt. Monica Belser says deputies were called to Gordon Highway near Olive Road late Saturday night after getting calls about a suspicious person flagging down vehicles there.

When they arrived they discovered two teens had been hit by a car that fled from the scene of the accident.

14 year old Zykeith Harris was pronounced dead at the scene.  The other teen’s name hasn’t been released yet, but he’s being treated for what was believed to be minor injuries.  Investigators are still searching for the hit-and-run driver.
