    A man struck by a hit-and-run driver in Oxon Hill, Maryland, is in critical condition, police say.

    Officers found a 27-year-old man lying injured in the road about 9 p.m. Monday in the 100 block of Monument Avenue. The man was going in and out of consciousness and suffering from trauma to his head and leg, Prince George's County police said. 

    Medics rushed the victim to a local hospital and he is currently in critical condition in the intensive care unit, police said Tuesday.

    Surveillance video shows the victim tried to cross Monument Ave. when a sedan of an unknown color traveling from Rivercrest Road merged onto Monument Ave. and struck him, police said. He was not in a crosswalk, according to police.

    After the impact, the sedan slowed down for a moment and then sped back up towards the Beltway, police said.

    Police have not released the victim's identity.

    There were no witnesses present at the time of the crash.
