At 6:33 a.m., ER staff at Wood County Hospital called police and reported a man that had been hit by a car was dropped off by an unknown man, who left the scene.

Hospital staff told police the unknown man was driving a silver Ford truck and that that there was a significant amount of blood inside the truck. The security manager was working on getting the video footage of the truck pulling up to the ER.

Police spoke with the injured man before he was transported. He said he was crossing an unknown street in Perrysburg when a dark colored vehicle struck him. He stated the car never stopped, according to the report.

He stated he didn’t know what road he was on and couldn’t remember any landmarks that were in the area that he was struck. He stated he is not familiar with the area because he is homeless and just walked to Perrysburg from Cleveland, according to the report.
