ERLANGER, Ky. (WXIX) - The Erlanger Police Department is investigating after a vehicle hit a 67-year-old pedestrian and then left the scene.

Around 9:30 p.m. Monday, the person was hit at the intersection of Commonwealth Avenue and Home Street, according to the Erlanger Police Department.

The vehicle did not stop, driving eastbound on Commonwealth Avenue away from the crash, police wrote on Facebook.

The 67-year-old was disoriented, lying in the middle of the crosswalk when two nurses found him.

“He was confused about the situation and unable to give us much information about why he ultimately ended up on the ground,” explained Erlanger officer Charlie Loudermilk.

Police do not have a description of the vehicle that hit the 67-year-old, but they do have some evidence to work with.

“Based on evidence that they did collect, if a vehicle is located that is believed to be involved, we’ll be able to match those two together,” Officer Loudermilk said. “Then like some pieces of like headlights and stuff like that they located.”

The 67-year-old was treated and released from the hospital, the officer said.
