Posted: Updated:
SOMERSET, Mass. (AP) - Police are looking for a motorist who fled a crash in Somerset that killed a man in a wheelchair.
 
Authorities say the hit-and-run happened around 11:43 p.m. Friday on Read Street near Southway Drive.
 
Investigators said at first that the suspect's vehicle could be a gray Toyota, possibly a Corolla with damage to its right front end.
 
Later Saturday, they said further investigation led them to focus on finding a Toyota Avalon manufactured between 1997 and 1999.
 
Authorities identified the deceased as 65-year-old local resident James Moore, who lived about a quarter-mile from the crash scene.
 
Somerset Police Chief Joseph Ferreira called him a kind, well-known man who recently sought him out a town meeting to say he supported the police.
 
Local and state police are investigating the crash together.
