LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Las Vegas police are searching for a driver wanted in connection with a hit-and-run collision that left a man fighting for his life Saturday. 

Metro said they responded to reports of a traffic incident in a parking lot on private property at 5905 W. Charleston Blvd., just east of Jones Boulevard, at about 1:30 a.m.

Witness statements and evidence at the scene indicated a sedan was traveling through the apartment complex when it struck a male pedestrian, according to police.

Authorities said the silver four-door vehicle did not stop after the impact and dragged the man underneath the vehicle for almost 300 feet before exiting the complex.

The 54-year-old pedestrian was transported from the scene to the University Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

Anyone with further information on this incident was urged by Metro to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
