Pedestrian struck by hit-run driver in west Charlotte

A pedestrian was injured Friday morning by a hit-and-run driver in west Charlotte, police say.

The incident was reported about 6:30 a.m. on the Billy Graham Parkway, at the ramp to Josh Birmingham Parkway. A passing motorist saw the victim lying on the side of the road a short time later.

The victim was taken by Medic to the hospital, but there is no word about how serious the injuries were.

Police did not get a good description of the vehicle involved. However, authorities said there were some reports that a black sedan was seen in the vicinity at the time. Authorities closed the ramp from the Billy Graham Parkway headed toward the airport while they investigated the incident.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers, 704-334-1600.
