Peoria hit-and-run victim identified

Authorities have identified a man killed in a Sunday hit-and-run incident in Peoria.

Peoria County Coroner Jamie Harwood says 52-year-old John Fasig of Peoria was the man struck at Sheridan and Corrington. He died of multiple blunt force injuries.

Fasig proved difficult for the coroner to identify. Fingerprint matches were ultimately made through Peoria police and Illinois State Police databases.

There have been no arrests made in connection with Fasig's death.
