The man’s name and age were not released.

“Preliminary investigation suggests the operator of the motor vehicle (possibly a late model Toyota Camry or Nissan Maxima) did not stop after striking the victim. The suspect fled the area on Adams Street towards Park Street,” police said in a statement released this afternoon.

Police are looking for the driver and the car, Grant said.
