WEST JORDAN — Police were searching Friday for the person who hit a 25-year-old man with their car, leaving him lying in the road with serious injuries.
West Jordan police received a call around 1:45 a.m. when a passerby first saw a shoe and then a man in the road near 7300 South and Jordan Landing Boulevard, according to West Jordan Police Sgt. Joe Monson. Investigators are unsure how long the man had been in the road.
Police are now seeking the public's help in finding whomever hit the man.
"It's very concerning to us that somebody can hit someone with a vehicle, then leave them in the middle of the road, hurt, and where they could be hit again," he said.
It appears as if a small passenger car hit the man while he was crossing the street. The area where the man was hit was dark and the man was not in a crosswalk.
The driver who struck the man would likely have noticed they hit him, and should have stopped, the sergeant said.
"There was an impact, possibly some front-end damage to the car, so they definitely know they hit somebody," he said.
The man was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries. Anyone with information is asked to call police.
