CLEAR LAKE – A pedestrian was hurt Thursday evening in Clear Lake when a pickup driver ran him down while walking on North Shore Drive.

The Clear Lake Police Department is investigating a hit and run crash involving a pedestrian that occurred on North Shore Drive sometime after 11:30 pm on Thursday, August 27.

The victim reported that he was walking eastbound along North Shore Drive at Woodlane in Clear Lake when he was stuck in the shoulder and knocked down. It appeared the vehicle that struck him was traveling west on North Shore Drive. Debris from the collision was collected at the scene.

The victim was later transported to the hospital by a private party and treated for injuries sustained in the collision.

Investigators are seeking the public’s assistance. From evidence collected, Clear Lake police tell NIT they are looking for a 2018-2020 maroon Ford truck. The vehicle should be missing its passenger side rear-view mirror and have other damage that could have been sustained from the collision.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Clear Lake Police Department at 641-357-2186. or by email at police@cityofclearlake.org. You may remain anonymous.

The incident remains under investigation.

A person who knows the victim wrote on social media after the incident, “You left my dad on the side of the road last night after hitting him with your red or burgundy 2018-2020 Ford pickup while he was walking on North shore, east of Woodland Dr. You were driving so recklessly that he couldn’t get out of the way even when he saw you coming at him. We dont know how long he lie there unconscious, or how he managed to walk back home. He is in the hospital but will be ok. In such a chaotic time in this world, you failed to be a good human. I wish you no ill will, as I believe in Karma. Do better and be better. And if you need that passenger side mirror back, it’s at the Clear Lake police department. I hope people share the heck out of this so we can find the person who is responsible for recklessly driving around our quaint little town and almost killing my dad.”
