Police say a car hit Justin Sartain at the intersection of South 3rd and Dock streets around 8 p.m. Feb. 23 as he walked to his job as a bartender.

Police say Sartain had the right of way and was midway through the intersection when the car hit him, throwing him into the air and onto the top of the vehicle. He rolled off the hood of the car and into the street. As he was in the street, the car took off running over him, shattering his foot and ankle.

Yesterday CrimeStoppers announced a $5,000 reward in the case. There’s no word on if anyone will get the money.
