Vehicle strikes pedestrian; driver flees

A pedestrian was struck by a white four door sedan while crossing the street, and the driver fled, according to the Bloomington Police Dept.

The man said he was walking to work around 6:10 p.m., Monday, at the corner of Rhorer Road and South Walnut when he crossed the street on a walk sign, and was struck, said the police. The impact threw the pedestrian onto the hood of the car, and damaged their cell phone, before the driver fled, according to the BPD. The man sustained a few scrapes and cuts, but was otherwise uninjured, said the police.

The man was unable to get the car’s plate number, or a description of the driver, said the BPD.
