One man was found dead in the Englewood neighborhood early this morning, according to authorities. 

Police found the man about 3:40 a.m., Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said. 

It's not clear how the man died, but police found him on Yale Avenue between 60th Place and 61st Street.

Police are investigating the incident as a possible hit-and-run car crash, Gaines said.

Investigators from the department's Major Accidents Investigations Unit, which handles all fatal car crashes, were sent to the scene to look for evidence of vehicular involvement.

His body lay underneath the Green Line tracks that run out to 63rd Street and Ashland Avenue as police tied crime scene tape to fences and sign poles.
