SANTA CLARA,Calif. -- Police are asking for the public's help in finding the driver involved in a hit-and-run crash in Santa Clara earlier this month that sent a man to the hospital with major injuries.
Around 10:30 p.m. on Oct. 6, a man walking on Maryann Drive at Benton Street in Santa Clara was struck by a car that fled the scene, according to police.
Arriving officers found the victim, a 37 year-old Santa Clara resident, lying in the roadway and suffering from significant injuries, police said.
Police describe the suspect vehicle as a newer black Ford Mustang with a rear spoiler. The car likely has front-end windshield damage from the collision, police said.
The driver is described only as a Hispanic man in his 20s who was wearing a red baseball hat at the time of the crash.
