Police in Holly Hill are looking for the hit and run driver that left an injured man laying in the middle of the road on Tuesday night.

Officers went to the intersection of Walker St. and N. Nova Rd. at around 11 PM where they found a man laying in the middle of the road with a head laceration and road rash all over his body.
