San Marcos police are searching for the driver of a light colored 2000 to 2006 Toyota Tundra pickup with a camper that struck and critically injured a pedestrian in downtown San Marcos early Sunday.
Abdulrhim Khalid Alesddigi, 23, was struck by the hit and run driver around 2:45 a.m. Sunday at the intersection of North Guadalupe and West Hopkins Street.
Downtown officers Kye Kennedy and Tiffany Williams found Alesddigi lying unresponsive in the street in the 100 block of West Hopkins. They administered CPR and restored a pulse to the victim by the time medics arrived.
He was transported to University Medical Center at Brackenridge in Austin where he remained in critical condition Sunday.
Witnesses told police that Alesddigi was crossing West Hopkins against the light when the pickup truck struck him. Evidence left at the scene indicates that the suspect vehicle was damaged on the passenger side fender and is missing the passenger side mirror.
