A 59-year-old man is in critical condition after being hit in an area of high traffic last night.

Baltimore Police were called to the area of S. Light Street near E. Pratt around 9:30 p.m. after a man was hit by an SUV. Police say it's possible the driver had no idea he or she hit someone walking.

"The individual was in the lane," said Donny Moses, Baltimore Police Department Spokesman. "From what we understand, several people may have avoided hitting him before the SUV actually hit him. Which is further reason for us to believe that the driver of the SUV may not have known they struck the individual."

Police hopes someone saw this or knows something and will come forward soon. If you have information, you're asked to call (410) 396-2606.
