Video: Police seek suspect in brazen road rage hit-and-run

LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas police were hoping Monday that distributing a security video of a car striking a man in the parking lot of a convenience store would lead to an arrest in the apparent hit-and-run road rage case.

The video shows the injured man, wearing red sweatshirt and his baseball cap knocked from his head, writhing on the ground as a dark gray Honda Accord drives away a little before noon Feb. 6 at a gas station at Flamingo Road and Jones Boulevard.

The man, in his 70s, suffered serious leg injuries, police Officer Laura Meltzer said. His name wasn't made public.

Meltzer said the incident was preceded by a brief traffic dispute between the man who was hit and the motorist in the Accord near the convenience store, about 2 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip.

The video shows the four-door Accord with tinted rear windows and a California license plate stopping for a moment as the man walks toward the store, and then advancing and knocking him to the pavement and driving away west on Flamingo Road.

The driver is described as a man in his 30's with a medium build wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt.
