Police in Evansville, Indiana, are looking for a driver that seriously injured an elderly man in a recent hit-and-run incident.

The Evansville Police Department says the hit-and-run happened back on Sunday, June 12, just before 9:00 p.m. at the CVS store on E. Morgan Avenue.

Police say the 80-year-old victim was at the CVS picking up prescriptions. As he was crossing Morgan Avenue to go back home, he was hit by a vehicle that fled the scene.

Based on parts found at the scene of the hit-and-run, police believe the suspect vehicle is a 2010 - 2017 Chevrolet Equinox SUV. They say the vehicle should be missing a driver's side mirror, and that it could possibly have other damage near the front and on the driver's side.
