Jogger hit by SUV in SE Rochester

Posted:

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- A jogger was hit by an SUV in southeast Rochester over the weekend-- and the driver didn't stick around to offer help.

The incident happened at about 8:45 p.m. Sunday night at the intersection of St. Bridgets Road and Quarve Road SE in Rochester.

Police say a 39-year-old man was running when he was struck by an SUV.

The vehicle then took off, without offering to help-- or even see if the pedestrian was okay.

The runner was knocked unconscious, but eventually woke up and walked to a nearby home for help.

He was taken to Saint Marys Hospital in Rochester with non-life threatening injuries.

Police are still investigating the incident.
