The Charles County Sheriff's Office is looking for a driver who reportedly left the scene of a crash involving a man in a wheelchair late Aug. 17.

At 11:01 p.m. Saturday, officers responded to the intersection of St. Charles Parkway and St. Thomas Drive in Waldorf for the report of a crash. Police said in a press release that a 35-year-old Waldorf man in a wheelchair was attempting to cross the parkway when a vehicle struck him and left the scene. Witnesses called 911.

The man was flown to Prince George's Hospital Center with injuries that were initially believed to be life-threatening. According to the release, he is in stable condition.

According to the release, witnesses described the vehicle as white, and evidence collected at the scene suggests it may be a Ford, possibly a Ford truck. Its right headlight was not working after the crash.

Anyone with information about the driver or the vehicle should contact the sheriff's office's traffic operations unit at 301-932-2222 or Charles County Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS. Crime Solvers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for any tip that leads to an arrest or indictment.
