Police are asking the public to help identify a car involved in a hit-and-run in Colorado Springs in early May.

The car, which hit a pedestrian in the 1200 block of East Cheyenne Road the night of May 7, is a 2009-2012 red Mitsubishi Gallant sedan that is missing a portion of its right front bumper, police said.

The pedestrian was seriously injured and was transported to a local hospital. Police spokesman Lt. Howard Black would not say if the victim remains hospitalized.

Black said police released the information now instead of when the crash occurred because the Major Accident Unit "deals with so many hit-and-runs every day" and "hit a dead end with this case."

This was the first of two hit-and-runs in two weeks.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 444-7000. Those who want to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 634-7867 or 1-800-222-8477.
