The Vermont State Police are asking for your help in identifying a hit-and-run driver.

The incident took place Saturday night, around 8 p.m. on U.S. Route 5 near Interstate 91 in Hartland. Police say a New Hampshire man ran out of gas and was trying to fill up his pickup on the side of the road when he was struck by a driver who then sped away. 

The victim was rushed to the hospital with multiple injuries, including a compound fracture of his thighbone and head injuries.  Police say the suspect was driving a mid-sized black sedan -- possibly a Honda or Nissan -- and that it likely has damage to its windshield, hood and passenger window.
