MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) - -

Memphis Police say one person is dead and another is in critical condition after 2 separate hit-and-run crashes Saturday night.

Police say 59-year-old Curtis Echols died just before 9 after being hit by a 2002 Chevrolet Malibu.

Police spokeswoman Karen Rudolph says the car wasn't at the scene when police arrived, but the owner called later and said she loaned the car to two people.

The owner noticed damage on the car after it had been returned.

Rudolph says police are searching for the two people in the car at the time of the crash.

No charges have been filed at this time.

Just after midnight, a man was hit by two people in their car at a McDonald's in the 1800 Block of South Parkway.

Police say, the victim got into an argument with the two suspects who left the restaurant first.

When the victim crossed the parking lot to his car, one of the suspects drove toward him.  Police say the passenger opened his door, striking the victim.

The 45-year-old man was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

No arrests have been made at this time.

If you have any information on either incidents, call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
