Police video of the collision shows the victim, a 38-year-old man, running across the street when he is hit by the vehicle which appears to be moving at a rather high speed. After the collision the vehicle appears to accelerate, according to the police video. It is unclear whether the pedestrian or the driver had the right-of-way.

The pedestrian was transported to St. Luke’s hospital where he was treated for his injuries, police said.

Here’s the video:

There was a witness to see the hit-and-run at the bottom left of the video in a large jacket with a hood.
