Man Injured After Being Struck by Car

Posted: Updated:

An intoxicated man walked into traffic and was struck by a vehicle.

It happened just before 9 p.m. Friday on Prater Way underneath the Interstate 80 overpass.

Sparks Police tell us 34-year-old Brant Polke was intoxicated when he stumbled into the street and fell in the road.

Police say once the man was in the road he was struck by a newer model silver or gray four-door Volkswagen Jetta.

That car fled the scene and so far police have not been able to find the driver.

Polke was taken to Renown with unknown injuries.

If you have any information you are being asked to call Secret Witness at 322-4900.
