The Cal­i­for­nia High­way Pa­trol is look­ing for a hit-and-run driver who caused ma­jor in­juries to a 68-year-old man.

The man was walk­ing north across River Road east of Bys­trum Road in south Modesto at about 9:45 p.m. Wed­nes­day, when he was hit by an east­bound ve­hi­cle, said Of­fi­cer Thomas Olsen.

The pedes­trian was taken by am­bu­lance to Memo­rial Med­i­cal Cen­ter with ma­jor in­juries.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors used parts from the ve­hi­cle that were left be­hind to de­ter­mine it was a 2012 to 2017 ruby red Ford Fo­cus.

The ve­hi­cle is miss­ing its driver-side mir­ror and likely has front-end col­li­sion dam­age to its driver­side fender and hood.

Call Of­fi­cer Aaron Norseen at 209-545-7440.
