FARGO - Police here are looking for tips in a hit-and-run collision which sent a disabled man to the hospital with a head injury on Wednesday evening, a police spokesman said.

Lt. Joel Vettel said a man in a wheelchair was struck by a white SUV outside Slammer's Sports Bar and Casino at the 700 block of 28th Avenue North here just before 7 p.m. on Wednesday night.

The victim, Donald Petersen, of Fargo, was sent to Sanford Medical Center with a head injury, Vettel said. It doesn't appear Petersen was using a crosswalk, he said.

Petersen's condition is satisfactory, a Sanford spokeswoman said at 4:30 p.m.

After the incident, the vehicle pulled into a nearby parking lot and sped off westbound, Vettel said. He said the vehicle is similar to a GMC Envoy.
