JUNEAU - Police believe a man reported lying unconscious on Glacier Highway over the holiday weekend was the victim of a hit-and-run driver.
The man is in fair condition today at Bartlett Regional Hospital suffering from a broken left leg and cuts to his scalp and ear, said Marijo Toner, hospital spokeswoman.
Police received a report at 1:56 a.m. Monday of a 41-year-old man, whose name was not released, lying unconscious in the middle of Glacier Highway near Harborview Elementary School, according to a press release.
When police arrived the man was lying in the middle of the outbound lanes of Egan Drive and was conscious, the release said. The man told police he was walking home from the downtown area to his residence, a boat at a downtown harbor, said Capt. Tom Porter today.
Porter said though the man had no idea how he came to be injured, police believe his injuries are consistent with being hit by a vehicle. Police are investigating the incident and hope any witnesses will contact them at 586-0600.
