An Elkhart man is in serious condition after being hit by a vehicle early Saturday morning, according to a nursing supervisor at Elkhart General Hospital.
James E. Armour Jr. has since been transported to Memorial Hospital in South Bend, the Elkhart County Sheriff's Department reported in a press release Saturday.
Armour was crossing State Road 19 near the Lakeshore Grill in Elkhart County just south of North Shore Drive when a vehicle struck him about 1:37 a.m.
Armour had cuts to the face and several internal injuries, police said.
Elkhart County Sheriff's Department officers are investigating the incident for possible charges of leaving the scene of a personal injury crash, police said. Officers are looking for a small, black pickup truck with front-end damage, including a broken headlight.
