INDIANAPOLIS -- Police say a man was seriously hurt when he got out of a truck on an Indianapolis street and was struck by a hit-and-run driver.

The man was hit about 11 p.m. Sunday on street in the city of Beech Grove on the south side of Indianapolis.

Beech Grove police Capt. Kellen Malloy tells WTHR-TV and WISH-TV that the man and his fiancee were in the pickup truck when got out. Malloy says officers didn't immediately know why the man left the truck and whether he was in a traffic lane of the four-lane street.

The man was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Police were searching for the car that struck him.
