91-year-old in critical condition after hit-and-run

MIAMI (NBC) - A 91-year-old man is in critical condition after being hit by a hit-and-run driver who decided to drive his SUV onto the sidewalk to get around a county transit bus.

The driver ran away after hitting the elderly man, leaving his silver Toyota 4Runner behind.

Police said video cameras on the county bus captured the entire incident.

The transit bus was about to come to a stop when the driver swerved and decided to go off road.

In the video, the elderly man is waiting at the front of the bus and as the doors are about to open, he is blind-sided by the SUV.

The driver stops at first and is seen on the phone pacing near the SUV.

As passengers get off the bus to see what happened, the man walks away and then disappears.

Witnesses said the driver ran into a nearby neighborhood.

Police don't think the vehicle is stolen and are using the registration and tag to locate the owner and possibly the hit-and-run driver.

The elderly victim was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital.
