ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Police are searching for a driver in connection to a hit and run crash that left a man in critical condition Wednesday night,

"We have nothing evidence suggesting any intent but I will tell you as always with these motor vehicle accidents we always treat them as a priority and as serious as they can be so of course we have a lot of people here trying to investigate this and figure out what happened," Tauriello said.
