ABSECON – A 26-year-old Galloway man was killed early Saturday morning by a hit-and-run driver, police said.

Kyle Marcy was hit by a dark-colored  2012 Honda Civic before 4:12 a.m. near the intersection of Routes 30 and 9 in Absecon.

Police say Marcy was a passenger of a silver 2015 Kia Forte that had stopped at the intersection. Marcy was struck after he got out of the car. The vehicle that struck him stopped briefly but then took off, authorities said Saturday afternoon.

Marcy was taken to Atlantic City Medical Center—City Division, where he was pronounced dead.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office said the Civic that drove away should have damage to its front passenger side.
