METHUEN, Mass. — Police are searching for the driver of an SUV that hit and seriously injured a pedestrian in Methuen and then drove away Saturday morning.

The 64-year-old victim, a Lawrence man, was hit about 1:20 a.m. Saturday in the area of ​​80 Broadway near the Lawrence-Methuen line, Methuen police Sgt. Dan O’Connell told Boston 25.

“We had a motor vehicle that witnessed the crash and called it immediately. Officers were on the scene immediately,” O’Connell said.

The victim was taken to a local hospital. He was in critical condition after the crash, police said.

No arrests had been made as of Saturday morning.

Police are using surveillance cameras to try to identify the driver, O’Connell said.

“We’re using our city cameras to look at the plate. We’re trying to track that driver down now,” O’Connell said.

Police described the suspect’s vehicle as a dark, boxy SUV, possibly a Honda CRV or Ford Escape, with extensive damage to the front passenger side of the vehicle, O’Connell said. The passenger side mirror was also ripped off.

“We expect there will also be damage to the windshield on the passenger side, where the victim was hit,” he said.
