A 29-year-old Elk Grove man was flown to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno following an alleged hit-and-run Friday morning.

About 6:50 a.m. the man was walking near Pioneer Trail east of Ski Run Boulevard when he was hit by a mid-sized white sedan that fled the scene, according to his statement to police.

A passer-by saw the man lying in the street, put him in his vehicle and drove him to Barton Memorial Hospital, said Lt. David Stevenson. He was later flown to Renown.

Both of the man’s femurs were broken following the incident. One was shattered in more than a dozen places, Stevenson said. The man is still alive, but additional details of his condition are unknown, Stevenson said.

Further suspect information was not available Tuesday.

The incident remains under investigation. Police ask anyone with information about the crash to call Detective Doug Sentell at 530-542-6120.
