RACINE -- A Union Grove man, 27, was struck by a hit-and-run driver and injured while clearing snow late Friday evening, Jan. 17. The driver fled the scene -- but left some evidence behind. As of Monday, the victim was home, recovering -- the most serious injury to his knee.

The Racine County Sheriff's Office was called to the scene near 58th Road and Colony Avenue (US-45) around 11:45 p.m.

Authorities said the victim was using a snowblower on his driveway when he was hit. He was taken to the hospital for injuries to his head and leg -- and was treated and released.

Union Grove hit-and-runSheriff's officials said the striking vehicle was believed to be either a 2015 Chevy Silverado or GMC Sierra 1500 with a toolbox in the bed, likely front-end damage, and a missing passenger-side mirror, which was left at the scene -- chrome on top and black on the bottom.

Surveillance cameras from a neighbor's home captured the moments before and after the crash. The video showed a man in the distance clearing snow from a sidewalk shortly before midnight on Friday. Off-camera, the sheriff said the driver struck the victim and fled the scene. The neighbor with the camera ended up calling 911.
