Two drivers run over man, leave him for dead
BATON ROUGE- Investigators are trying to find two drivers who hit a man on Highland Road and left him for dead.
The hit and run happened in the 1600 block of Highland Road just after 8pm. That's between the new bridge and the north gates of LSU.
Haley Wroten couldn't believe her eyes when she saw two drivers run over the man and keep going.
"They didn't stop," Wroten said. "They kept going almost 50 miles per hour."
Brooke Allen also witnessed the crash.
"I turned around and saw a few people run over him," Allen said. "It was gross."
The victim was taken to a local hospital. He did not recall who hit him, but the witnesses who saw it unfold are in disbelief that they were the only ones who stopped.
"That's Baton Rouge for ya," Wroten said.
