Upon arrival, officers located the victim lying in the roadway suffering from injuries to his arm, feet and head. The victim, a 75 year old resident of East Palo Alto, was transported to Stanford Hospital and is listed in serious condition with a head wound.

At the time of the officers' arrival, there were several passing motorists on scene who reported that the car that struck the victim was not on scene when they arrived to render aid.  Officers located debris on the scene from the suspect vehicle, which was later identified as belonging to a 2000-2006 Gray BMW X5 SUV.
