A male was in the roadway at Jackson and Main streets after being struck by a vehicle. He's now up and walking. Mercy medics and city fire are on scene. The driver fled eastbound in a dark blue or tan Ford Explorer, and he is said to be white with dark hair and wearing sweatshirt. Police are looking for the vehicle now.
UPDATE 2:07 p.m.: Police are out with a vehicle matching that description at T.F. Brown's.
UPDATE 2:08 p.m.: Police are clear of that vehicle, and still looking for the Explorer. Now the driver is said to have "darker skin" and curly hair.
UPDATE 2:11 p.m.: Fire and medics are back in service.
Maybe it's just me but, if I were to be struck by a vehicle I'd be a little fuzzy about the important details myself.
Glad this guy is not seriously injured.
Our laws for fleeing the scene of an accident with injuries are not tough enough.
