Police are searching for a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run in southeast Edmonton early Saturday morning.
Officers responded to a report of a hit-and-run in the area of 23 Avenue and 85 Street at approximately 12:50 a.m.
A man attempted to cross 23 Avenue northbound on a marked crosswalk. A vehicle on the eastbound right lane stopped to let him cross, but then another vehicle—believed to be a black Acura—on left lane struck the pedestrian and fled the scene.
The pedestrian suffered serious, but non-life threatening injuries. He was tended by a driver before paramedics arrived and took him to hospital.
