East Precinct officers were kept busy on Friday night, April 29 — with shootings, riots, and wrecks.
One of the crashes was logged at 11:59 p.m., when police were dispatched to the report of pedestrian being struck by a car at S.E. 82nd Avenue of Roses and Henderson Street, in the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood. Emergency medical first responders arrived too -- including Lents Fire Station's Engine 11 paramedics, and an ambulance.
Officers found an adult male, who had to be medically stabilized before being rushed off to a local hospital with what officials called "life-threatening" injuries.
What wasn't at the scene was the car that witnesses said at first slowed after the hitting the man, and then sped away southbound on 82nd Avenue.
So far, there has been no further report on the injured pedestrian in this case.
