OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Omaha Police say a pedestrian was left with serious injuries after a vehicle hit him and fled near 60th and F Streets on Sunday night.

Around 8:40 p.m., officers were dispatched to the area where they learned a northbound 1996 Honda Accord had broken down in the roadway and had its hazard lights on and an orange traffic cone to warn oncoming drivers.

Reynold Reed, 30, was trying to fix a tire on the Honda when a northbound 2014 Nissan Altima hit the Honda and then Reed.

The Nissan, driven by 18-year-old Carlos Gonzalez, continued northbound for about 100 ft before the driver and passenger fled on foot.

Reed was transported to Bergan Mercy with serious injuries, according to police.

Gonzalez was located later near N 34th and Parker Streets. He was uninjured and booked into Douglas County Corrections for Leaving the Scene of a Personal Injury Crash.
