It happened shortly after 8:00 p.m. Monday night at Hoover Avenue and Mile-of-Cars Way.

A private security guard, Fernando Peralta, says he heard a driver revving his engine in traffic. Moments later the man was hit.

"As soon as he gets to the intersection, I heard screeching tires and a loud smack and I see him swerve out of the way and he keeps going, takes off," Peralta said.

The man was taken to the hospital complaining of a leg injury and bleeding from his head.

The car is described as a 2009 Nissan Altima 2-door.
