Little Rock police are searching for a driver who hit a pedestrian Monday morning along North Hughes Street and Amherst Cove.

Little Rock Police Lt. Sidney Allen said Barry Livingston, 76, left his residence on Auburn Drive before 6 a.m. for a run.

Another runner found Livingston lying unconscious in the grass about 120 feet south of Amherst Cove, a motor vehicle collision report states.

Emergency officials responded to the scene, where they found Livingston with a severe head injury and a broken right leg.

Police say Livingston’s injuries are consistent with being hit by a motor vehicle.

Livingston was transported to CHI St. Vincent, where he had emergency surgery. The report states that Livingston is listed in critical condition.

Police are asking the public’s assistance in finding the vehicle that hit Livingston.

“Any walkers, runners or drivers in the area that may of seen a vehicle leaving the area of Amherst and North Hughes is encouraged to call the police at (501) 918-5150,” Allen said in an email.

A description of the vehicle that hit Livingston was not available.

Both sides of Hughes in that strip are either steep or overgrown and there are no sidewalks so you have no place to go. People, especially elderly people, it's great that you get out and exercise but please, go to areas with sidewalks, go to school running tracks, go to a park. Your eyes, ears, and legs just aren't what they use to be.

Good advice. Too many distracted drivers these days.

It is the height of irony when a runner or cyclist, trying to maintain fitness and enhance their health, ends up with major, severe, perhaps life-threatening or potentially disabling injuries on account of such running or cycling exercise. Flourescent orange or green vests, brightly-colored or at least bright white caps or hats, and level, even sidewalks at least several feet from roadways are essential, and even then there is no guarantee a car won't leave the roadway and strike a jogger or cyclist.
