Police seek help in finding hit and run suspect
Submitted By San Leandro PD
In the early morning hours of Thursday, Nov. 1, a 26-year-old man was hit by a car while walking in the southbound lane of the 13400 Block of Bancroft Avenue in San Leandro.
Arriving officers determined the man was walking alone when the incident occurred around 5:23 a.m. The vehicle fled the scene without stopping, leaving the man with serious, but not life-threatening injuries. He was taken to an area hospital where he was later reported in critical condition.
Based on limited information available after the incident, police believe the vehicle is a Hyundai Elantra and that it should have sustained front end damage from the impact.
