A Sudbury man suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries on Thursday after being hit by a car on Paris Street.

Sudbury police report that, between 1 and 2 a.m., the man was on a sidewalk near the old St. Joseph's Hospital.

Police said he tried to wave a car down and, when he did, the passenger side of the vehicle hit him. The car came to a stop, but no one came out of the vehicle and then the driver left the scene.

The injured man made his way to Science North, where a security guard found him and called an ambulance. The only description the pedestrian could provide was that the vehicle was small, silver, two-door car.

Anyone with information about this hit-and-run is asked to call police.
