Police say a Vancleave man found dead along Highway 57 Thursday morning was the victim of a hit and run.
Officials say sometime during the night, 52 year old David D. Summers got a ride from a friend to the Wal-Mart Super Center in Ocean Springs.
Summers reportedly told his friend he'd find a ride home. Investigators believe Summers was walking home on Highway 57 when he was hit.
A passing motorist spotted the body on the side of the busy highway around seven Thursday morning, just a few hundred yards from some homes.
