Stonington — A 51-year-old man who was struck by a car early Friday morning in a hit-and-run accident has died of his injuries, police said.

Capt. Jerry Desmond said the accident was reported at 5:11 a.m. on Route 2 near the intersection of Route 78. The unidentified man was taken by Life Star helicopter to Rhode Island Hospital, where he later died of his injuries.

Desmond said police are notifying the victim's next of kin before releasing his identity.
