A Ford Crown Victoria taxi cab hit a 48-year-old North Miami resident on Tuesday and put him in critical condition before driving away, Miami-Dade police say.

Police say the Ford Crown Victoria hit Jean H. Saint Louis around 3:40 a.m. at Northeast 144th STreet and West Dixie Highway. They didn’t give a color of the cab, but said it had a yellow bumper in the front, a black bumper in the back, tinted windows and that it might have windshield damage. Both the passenger side mirror and windshield wipers are missing.
