CHP officers Monday were looking for the driver of a late-model GMC Sierra pickup possibly involved in a hit-and-run crash with a pedestrian on Stony Point Road.
Santa Rosa resident Mario Hernandez-Carbalo, 29, was walking home across Stony Point Road near Todd Road when he was hit at about 1:40 a.m. Sunday, CHP Officer Kerri Post said. The impact knocked him about 20 feet onto a dirt shoulder, Post said.
The man had just left Casa Del Mar, a nearby restaurant and bar. A bar employee heard something and checked the darkened road but didn’t see anything. Several minutes later the sound of moaning led to the injured man and a 911 call was made at 2:03 a.m.
Officers found pieces of a front headlight at the scene, leading them to identify the vehicle as a 2007-2013 GMC Sierra pickup that apparently was headed south. There were no signs the driver had slowed before hitting the man, Post said.
Hernandez-Carbalo was taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, where he was treated and released Sunday.
Post asked anyone with information about Sunday’s crash to contact CHP officers at 588-1400.
