    ATLANTA - Street sweepers made a grisly discovery late Thursday night -- a body on the side of the street.

    Now police are investigating the death as a hit-and-run.

    Police said a crew cleaning the streets found the man dead on the ground in grass near Interstate 285 on Campbellton Road. The crews immediately called 911.

    Authorities believe a vehicle hit him and kept going. 


    The hit-and-run unit is working the case, and right now, they have no description on a vehicle.

    Police said the victim is between the ages of 20 to 30 years old and are working to find out his name.
