WASHINGTON — Police are asking for the public's help finding the driver they believe hit a man with a car before driving away Sunday evening.
The collision was reported in the 1700 block of New York Avenue in Northeast D.C. just after 8 p.m.
When officers arrived, they learned a man had been hit by a car while trying to cross the street. The man was taken to an area hospital for help with life-threatening injuries. There is no word on the man's current condition.
The driver left after the man was hit, according to police.
A day later, police released a photo of the car they say was used in the hit-and-run, captured by a nearby surveillance camera.
