Police are looking for the driver of a pickup truck that killed a Baltimore man who fell beneath its wheels after a fight Friday morning in Pigtown.

The dead man, Kion Smith, 20, of the 2000 block of McElderry St., was found at the intersection of Wilhelm and South Pulaski streets in Southwest Baltimore at 11: 15 a.m., police said.

Witnesses told police they saw Smith and the unidentified driver fighting on the side of the street before the driver got into a pickup truck. Smith grabbed the vehicle and clung to the side as the pickup drove off, police said.

The truck driver is described as a white male in his 30s with long black and gray hair. Police have not found the driver or the pickup, which was described as full-size with wooden construction-type beams on the roof and a black tarp over the back.

The man was last seen driving south on Pulaski Street.
