PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Providence police are looking for the driver who struck a pedestrian and fled the scene Friday night.

Police say an elderly man was crossing Admiral Street around 8 p.m. when he was struck.

The man, who family members identified as Rodney Andreoni, was hit when he was walking toward his parked car.

“A car flew by, hit him, and knocked him into the street, and they left him there – then they shut off their lights,” his son Dean Andreoni said.

Surveillance video shared with 12 News captured the seconds leading up to Rodney getting hit.

Gabriel Lebeau, a Providence College EMT, said he was on duty at the time and witnessed the aftermath of the crash. 

“I just happened to be at the right place at the right time, he said. “I saw a man fallen on the road screaming for help,” said Lebeau.  

Rodney initially refused medical treatment but was later brought to the hospital by a family member. He has broken ribs and a broken hand, according to Dean.  

Police tell 12 News they are looking for a dark color older model Lexus with tinted windows.

Dean is urging anyone with information to contact the police.
