Police have identified the Oak Harbor man hit by a car while walking down State Highway 20 Monday night and have also located the vehicle they believe is involved in the crime.

The man was identified as 55-year-old Anthony Herrmann, according to the Island County Sheriff’s Office.

He was walking in the 30000 block of the highway near his residence when he was struck. He may have been walking from the south Oak Harbor area, near 7-Eleven and the DK Market, the sheriff’s office reported.

During the investigation, detectives located evidence that led them to the vehicle they believe is involved in the case. The vehicle, a 2004 Blue Jaguar XD4, with the Washington License plate AFJ4435, was seized and a search warrant obtained to recover any evidence, according to a sheriff’s office press release.

Detectives are asking the public’s help in determining the location of the vehicle prior to Herrmann’s death. Anyone who may have seen the vehicle in the Oak Harbor area between Jan. 30 at 10 p.m. and Jan. 31 at 10 a.m. is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office via the ICOM dispatch at 360-679-9567 or Tips@co.island.wa.us
