HERMANTOWN, Minn. (AP) - Hermantown police are looking for the hit-and-run driver who struck and killed an 84-year-old man.

Police say Laurence Sundquist apparently was trying to get a newspaper from a roadside box when he was struck.

A motorist found Sundquist lying unconscious on the road and not breathing about 5 a.m. Thursday.  Sundquist was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The Star Tribune says the driver who struck Sundquist might not have realized it because of poor road conditions. It was foggy and before dawn at the time.
