Elkhart Police say a man has died after a hit-and-run on South Main Street near Concord Mall.

Officers at the scene tell FOX28 73-year-old Frank Nelson of Elkhart was walking on or along South Main Street in front of the mall when he was hit by a vehicle. Police say a passerby stopped and did CPR on the man. First responders continued CPR and took the man to an Elkhart hospital, where he died.

Police at the scene say an off-duty Elkhart Police officer in a personal vehicle saw the accident and followed the suspect, 21-year-old Kent Phounagmalay's  car. The car was stopped in the mall parking lot and he taken into custody. A FOX28 crew at the scene says the car has a broken windshield.

Police believe Phounagmalay may be intoxicated. 

South Main Street in front of the mall was closed during the investigation. Police say the Elkhart County Fatal Alcohol Crash Team were called to the scene.
