DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Dubuque Police are asking for the public's help identifying a vehicle that hit a pedestrian and fled the scene.

It happened shortly after 6 p.m. Sunday.

Dubuque Police and Fire/EMS officials responded to 16th and Main streets on a report of a man hit by a car.

Richard Heim, 64, of Dubuque, was found in the street, suffering from several injuries.

The ambulance transported him to Mercy Medical Center Dubuque, where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Police are looking for the vehicle, which appears to be a silver or gray four-door sedan.

They say the driver hit Heim and then left the scene without stopping to help.

The vehicle was last seen traveling northbound in the 1700 block of Madison Street (where Main Street becomes Madison Street at 17th Street).

The car may have minor damage toward the front end on the driver's side.

Anyone with information can contact Dubuque Police at 563-589-4415 and request the information be relayed to Officer Nevers or Officer Mihalakis.
