BATON ROUGE - An LSU cheerleader is in intensive care after he was struck by a hit-and-run driver this weekend.

Police said Kip Carter was struck by a vehicle while on River Road early Sunday morning. He was walking back home from a friend's house when he was hit by an SUV.

"It's just not acceptable to leave someone like that in that condition. We're just hoping they do the right thing and turn themselves in," LSU Spirit Director Pauline Zernott said.

Sgt. Don Stone with the Baton Rouge Police Department said they are looking for a gray Chevy Suburban with damage to the passenger's side headlight and mirror.

Anyone with information about the incident should contact BRPD at (225) 389-2000.
