Police searching for hit-and-run driver who left person seriously injured in Boston

BOSTON (WHDH) - Boston police are searching for a hit-and-run driver who authorities say struck and seriously injured a person in the South End early Monday morning.

Emergency crews responding to the area of Washington Street around 1:30 a.m. found the victim suffering from life-threatening injuries, Boston police said.

They were transported to a local hospital, where their current condition has not been released.

The suspect vehicle is believed to have fled the scene.

A woman who called 911 says she was talking to the victim as they were lying in the street before an ambulance got there.

“He was just laying on the ground. He had a big, really large bump on his forehead,” she recalled. “It’s really sad to see that somebody could have just left a person there.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Boston Police Homicide Unit.
