KYLE, Texas (KXAN) - Kyle police have found a vehicle they believe struck and killed Phillip Duran, 37, Saturday night.
Authorities located the vehicle in the Hays High School parking lot after receiving several tips from the public. The vehicle was seized by police and the driver was being investigated by officers on Tuesday.
"We have interviewed an individual that we believe to be the driver of a vehicle that may have struck Mr. Duran," said Jeff Barnett with the Kyle Police Department. "He has admitted to driving a truck in that area at the time that we think an accident may have occurred, so he's definitely a person of interest."
The driver of the vehicle is a student at the school and was reported to be cooperating with investigators. No charges had been filed as the investigation is ongoing.
The driver's name has not been released.
Duran was killed after leaving his home to go jogging . The incident occurred sometime after 10 p.m. at the intersection of FM 1626 and Kohlers Crossing.
Kyle police said vehicle parts, including at side mirror, recovered at the scene where Duran was found were believed to be related to the incident.
A witness told Duran's brother, Chad Benninghoff, she was following a car near the intersection when it appeared to strike something.
"She informed me of what happened during the accident," Benninghoff said. "Basically, a black truck was weaving down southbound 1626 and she was some distance behind it, but saw the rear headlights jolt, like it had hit something.
"They pulled over," Benninghoff continued, "and she pulled up and asked if they needed help. They said 'No, we don't need help, we just hit a deer.'"
During the search for Duran, Benninghoff was able to help police. He found his brother dead along the side of the road.
"I was able to get off work a few hours early and come help and join the search, and after a few hours of looking in every ditch and side of the road that we run, I ended up finding him," Benninghoff said.
As Phillip Duran's family waits for more answers, they're remembering the 37 years of life he lived to the fulllest.
"He's a good young man, doing good things in life," Benninghoff said, "He was in the Marine Corps for four years."
