Smith had been identified in the days after the incident, but police had not yet released his name publicly since they were having difficulties notifying his next of kin.

Photos and videos released Dec. 4 show a dark sedan driving on rainy streets. Police say it was the car that hit the man crossing the street. None of the video released shows the incident.

The dark sedan had front end damage on the passenger side, police said.
