BOVINA, MS (WLBT) – The Mississippi Bureau of Investigations is conducting a hit and run investigation involving a man who was critically injured.

MBI spokesman Jon Kalahar said agents are on the hunt for the motorist who hit a man while walking in Interstate 20 West at Bovina.

The 42 year old white male victim was found lying on the side of the stretch of Warren county roadway around six Sunday morning.

His name has not been released pending family notification.

The man was first transported to River Region Medical Center in Vicksburg then air lifted to University Medical Center.

Kalahar described his condition was described as critical but no other details about his injuries were given.

Officials said they had no description of the vehicle nor driver and had very few leads.

Investigators said there may be surveillance video of the incident, but they need the public's assistance.
