WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Wichita police say a 71-year-old man is in critical condition after being struck by a distracted driver who left him on the side of the road.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1zFwzFW ) the unidentified victim was being treated at the Wesley Medical Center on Thursday.

Sgt. Stephen Patton says the man was walking Wednesday when he was struck from behind by a 29-year-old woman, who drove off. He says the woman’s husband retraced her route after she told him she hit something.

Patton says the husband found the man lying next to the road less than a mile from their home. He says the man was likely lying there for up to 30 minutes.

The driver tells police she was distracted by something inside her vehicle. No charges have been reported.
