Authorities are investigating the scene where they found a man seriously injured on the side of the road at south Modesto on Wednesday.  They believe that the man may be the victim linked to a hit-and-run accident that happened earlier that same day.

California Highway Patrol recorded a hit-and-run accident on the 600 block of South Seventh Street Wednesday morning. The accident may be related to a man who was found with serious injuries. Stanislaus County sheriff’s detectives decided to take on the case that investigators have not been able to solve. The exact series of events that led to the injured man remain a mystery.

Wednesday morning the victim a 53-year-old man was left with multiple injuries at around 10 a.m. on the side of the road and could not elaborate to authorities what happened. When authorities discovered him, they took appropriate precautions and transported him to the hospital.

A press release stated that investigators “are trying to determine how the male was injured and how he ended up on the side of the road. They have limited information regarding the circumstances of the male’s injuries and are seeking help from the community to assist them in their investigation.”

Sgt. Anthony Bejaran alleged that at this time, what was stated in the press release is all that authorities are aware of in regards to the case.

“At this point, the victim isn’t speaking,” Bejaran told ModBee. It is important that the victim speaks because they don’t have much other solid evidence to understand what happened.

According to physicians, the victim should have recovered sufficiently today to be able to tell the story of what he knows to authorities who are hoping to talk to the man as soon as possible.

Authorities have been able to touch base with the family of the victim whom his family has positively identified. Investigators are hoping to get further information from them and get their side of the story. And while the identity of the man has been revealed, detectives are not planning on releasing it to the public anytime soon.

“He is from Modesto,” Bejaran said. It’s not yet clear what the man was doing on South Seventh Street or if he lives in the immediate area.

If authorities found one of your loved ones on the side of the road with significant physical or mental damage and you were able to positively identify them, then contact a personal injury lawyer today who may be able to help pay for medical costs until the case is solved, and if your case is not solved, you don’t pay anything.

According to a news release, investigators “are trying to determine how the male was injured and how he ended up on the side of the road. They have limited information regarding the circumstances of the male’s injuries and are seeking help from the community to assist them in their investigation.”

That’s pretty much all authorities know, Sgt. Anthony Bejaran said.

“At this point, the victim isn’t speaking,” said Bejaran. Authorities are hoping the man will have recovered enough by today to talk with detectives.

In the meantime, investigators planned to talk with the man’s family. Although they have established his identity, Bejaran said detectives aren’t releasing it.

“He is from Modesto,” Bejaran said. It’s not yet clear what the man was doing on South Seventh Street or if he lives in the immediate area.
