One person was killed early Friday morning in a Decatur hit-and-run, police said.

Larry White of Toney was killed in the wreck around 2:45 a.m., according to Morgan County Coroner Jeff Chunn.

Police said the car was heading eastbound on Highway 20 when the vehicle was hit from behind by another vehicle. White lost control of the car, crossed the median, flipped several times and ended upside down in the shoulder of the westbound lanes, they said.

White was pronounced dead at the scene. A woman in the car was taken to Decatur-Morgan Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The vehicle that hit White's car left the scene, police said.

One lane in both directions were closed while emergency crews worked the wreck.
