Police were investigating Sunday morning a vehicle-pedestrian hit-and-run accident that sent a 27-year-old Lawrence man to the hospital with minor injuries.
According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Ted Bordman, the victim was crossing Tennessee Street on foot westbound near the intersection of 13th and Tennessee streets when he was struck by a passenger car traveling southbound on Tennessee.
The man, who suffered minor abrasions to his knee, could not provide details on the appearance of the suspect vehicle. The driver of a nearby car was able to identify the vehicle as a tan passenger car.
The suspect vehicle reportedly was last seen turning east onto 18th Street from Tennessee.
Bordman said police were reviewing information on the possible suspect vehicle.
The call was dispatched at 2:35 a.m. and police arrived shortly thereafter. Medics transported the man to Lawrence Memorial Hospital at about 2:50 a.m.
