JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC) -

The Charleston Police Department is on the lookout for an SUV involved in a hit-and-run on James Island that sent one man to the hospital.

On Saturday around 2 a.m., officers responded to the area of 850 Folly Rd. for an accident involving a moped and SUV. When police arrived, they saw the victim laying down on the middle of the road with several moped parts scattered around the roadway.

Witnesses told officers that they were stopped at a traffic light on Folly Road and Rivers Point Row when they saw the victim riding a moped and making a right turn onto Folly Road.

According to the witnesses, after the victim made the turn, he lost control of his moped and laid it down on the road. Police say when the victim attempted to pick up his moped, an SUV struck the victim.

A police report states that driver of the SUV made no attempt to stop and continued traveling northbound on Folly Road. The victim was transported to MUSC suffering from several lacerations and charged with driving under the influence.

Police describe the SUV as an older model possibly white Chevrolet suburban with front end damage.

If you have any information you are asked to call police or Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
