Massachusetts police say they have identified a driver in connection with an alleged hit-and-run crash in Saugus, Massachusetts earlier this week that seriously injured a pedestrian.

The crash, which was captured on surveillance video, happened on Route 1 southbound at Route 99 at 10:17 a.m., police said.

A 24-year-old Gloucester man who works in the area was hit by the white sendan as he was getting a barrel that had blown into the roadway, according to police. The driver continued on to Route 99 without stopping.

The victim was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital with serious injuries, police said.

A nearby camera captured an image of the vehicle, which police believe may have been a Nissan Sentra. The vehicle is suspected to have front-end and undercarriage damage, police said.

An investigation into whether charges are warranted is ongoing.
