Man Run Over At Petrol Station: Driver Sought

Police in Las Vegas have appealed for information over a hit-and-run caught on CCTV that left a man injured at a petrol station.

In the footage, a grey Honda Accord is seen driving up to the victim, who was walking from the pump area towards the shop.

As he looks back at the car, the driver accelerates, hitting the man and knocking him to the ground.

The car then speeds off as the man writhes in pain, clutching his legs.

Police have reveal that just before the incident, the victim drove into the station forecourt when a grey Honda Accord pulled out in front of him.

The unnamed victim had to drive around the Accord to avoid an accident at an Arco station on February 6.

The Accord, a 2010 or 2011 model, had tinted rear windows and a California licence plate beginning with "6C", said police.

It was last seen driving out of the parking area westbound on Flamingo Road.

The victim was then taken to hospital suffering injuries to his legs.

Police say the suspect was described as a white male in his 30s with a medium build, who was last seen wearing a grey hoodie.

Investigators have posted video of the incident on their official YouTube page in the hope someone will come forward with information leading to the driver's arrest.

"We set up this video so folks would be able to ? notify us if they could identify this person or vehicle," Las Vegas police told FoxNews.com.
