Police are hunting for a fatal hit and run driver who got out of his car and looked at a woman's body after crashing into her before fleeing the scene.

Rachel Spelman, 23, was killed when she was struck by a car in Dallas, Texas on Saturday at about 2am.

Police said a dark colored sedan struck the woman in the 2200 block of Cedar Springs Road.

The driver got out of their car and looked at Spelman's body on the ground and then sped away.

Police are now working to identify the make and model of the car but said it was likely to have front-end damage to the windshield and possibly the back window. 

The driver was described as a black male with short curly hair and about 5'10" to 6'2" in height.  He was last seen wearing a gray shirt and black pants. 

Spelman was running across the street at the time of the crash and not using the crosswalk, NBC5 reports.
