WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Laurel Police are releasing a video to help search for the driver of a pick-up truck that swerved onto a sidewalk, hit a pedestrian and then kept driving.

The incident was caught on the camera of a nearby Metrobus on Wednesday afternoon. The bus and another car stopped to try to help the pedestrian.

The man was thrown over a 30-foot embankment and is hospitalized with severe head injuries and a crushed pelvis, among other injuries. He was taken to Baltimore Shock Trauma for treatment.

Police believe the truck is a Ford F-250 pick-up with a super cab and extended bed. They say the model year is 2005 to 2007.

Laurel Det. Brad DiPietro says the driver very likely knew what had happened when the pedestrian was struck.
