A man was critically injured Sunday after his car was hit from behind by a speeding driver who then took off, according to police.

The hit-and-run crash happened just before 3 a.m. in the 2200 block of Northwest 41st Street in Miami-Dade.

On Tuesday, police said that they were looking for a black 2013 four-door Kia Optima with extensive front-end damage and missing driver's side headlight.

Police say the injured man was heading south on 22nd Avenue in a black Honda Accord when another car “traveling at a high rate of speed” slammed into the back of his car.

The man was taken to Ryder Trauma Center in critical but stable condition, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
