Wise County authorities are looking for a vehicle and driver following a hit-and-run Wednesday evening. Virginia State Police reports that an adult male was jogging on Hurricane Road toward Johns Road between 6:10 and 6:30 p.m. Wednesday when he was struck by a vehicle, believed to be a 1999 to 2001 Jeep Cherokee. The jogger was thrown into a ditch and discovered by a passerby several minutes later. He was then flown to the Johnson City Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries. The Jeep failed to stop at the scene. It should have damage to the front and or side and is missing its passenger-side mirror. If anyone has any information on the Jeep, they are asked to call the VSP at 276-228-3131.
