UPDATED: [PHOTOS] A pedestrian was seriously injured after being struck by a hit and run driver this evening, as reported on our News Alerts. The incident occurred about 10 PM on Somerset Avenue.

According to witnesses, the pedestrian, a Lakewood Chaveirim member and out of town Hatzolah member, was getting into his vehicle parked on the side of the road, when he was struck. Sources say he had just finished fixing a flat tire when the incident occurred.

Hatzolah and EMS responded to the scene and found the victim semi-conscious.
