BATON ROUGE-Authorities continue to search for clues after someone hit a man Saturday night and fled the scene.

A white four door sedan believed to be a Nissan Sentra struck Matt Tugwell, 28, around 11:20 p.m. near East State Street and Dalrymple according to witness Laura Brown.

Brown says the vehicle hit Tugwell on his side, causing him to flip in the air and land on the windshield of the car.

He rolled off of the car on to the side of the road, says Brown.

"It's heartbreaking for a mother but what's even more concerning is we don't know who did this. We're trying to put the pieces together," said Cathy Tugwell- Bartels, the victim's mother.

Brown says the driver of the car stopped, but later kept going.

Tugwell is at the hospital, and his family and friends are looking for anyone with information to let them know via their facebook page.
