Police said a man suffered serious injuries early Monday from being hit by a car that then fled the scene.
The man was struck near the intersection of Avondale Avenue and Howard Street while walking about 2:30 a.m., police spokesman Wil Glenn said.
The man, whose identity was not released, had life-threatening injuries, Glenn said.
Police said they think a silver minivan may have hit the man, and they appealed to anyone with information about the hit-and-run to call CrimeStoppers at 919-683-1200.
CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases, and callers never have to identify themselves.
