RENO — On Thursday at about 6:20 p.m., a middle-aged man was crossing Longley Boulevard in the 2500 block about a quarter mile south of the intersection with Rock Boulevard. The man had just left the convenience store at 2550 Longley Blvd. and told the clerk he was planning on walking to downtown Reno. The clerk described the man as possibly being homeless. 

As the male crossed the four-lane boulevard he was struck by a south bound vehicle. The man was not in a marked crosswalk or near an intersection. The vehicle was seen stopping for a short time before driving off and leaving the scene. The victim was taken to Renown Medical Center where he is in critical condition. 

Police are asking for help in identifying the vehicle involved in this accident. It has been partially identified as being a mid-size sedan, lighter in color, missing a side mirror and probably having right front damage. If anyone has seen a similar vehicle in the area at the time of the accident or has any information related to this investigation, please contact Reno police detectives at 657-4758.
