The Fayette County Coroner says a man found dead in a field next to Interstate 75 is the same man police had been looking for in connection with a New Year's Eve hit and run.

A driver spotted the man's body near the I-64/I-75 southern split in Lexington.

Police shutdown the ramp from I-64 West to I-75 South while they investigated the man's death.

According to the coroner, however, the investigation started last night when police received a report of a hit and run at Winchester Road and I-75.

The car, belonging to 53-year-old Clark Roberts was found, but, police say, Roberts himself had run off.
