Man Injured in Heyburn Hit and Run
HEYBURN, Jan 11, 2013 (The Times-News - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
A man was taken to Cassia Regional Medical Center with possible internal injuries after Heyburn police say he was struck by a pickup at about 8:25 p.m. Thursday.
According to a police report, the man was walking from Love's Travel Stop at 260 Centennial Drive in Heyburn to his truck parked at Gear Jammer Truck Wash, at 277 Centennial, when a dark-colored Toyota or Nissan full-size, regular cab pickup passed him heading east at high speed. The pickup started spinning circles in the snow, then headed toward U.S. Highway 30 and accelerated.
According to the report, the mirror on the truck struck the man in the middle-left side of his back. The man told police he heard a loud slamming noise when he was struck.
Later, at the hospital, police reported that the man was in visible pain and could hardly move.
A nurse told police the man did not have broken ribs, but was coughing up blood and more tests were needed to determine the extent of his internal injuries.
The man's name has not been released.
Police are still searching for a suspect. According to the police report, a manager at Love's said they would review security footage to try to identify the vehicle.
Anyone with information in this case can call the police department's non-emergency line at 208-679-4545.
