A man suffered serious injuries early this morning (Thursday 8/4) when Billings Police say a vehicle deliberately hit him.

According to the post on Twitter @BillingsPD, officers responded at 1:34 am this morning to a Vehicular Assault that had occurred in the 1500 block of Central Avenue.

Billings Police Sargeant Peterson said in the social media post that a 50-year-old man had been "intentionally struck" by the car near Bucks Bar at 1511 Central Avenue, and had sustained "life-threatening injures."

Some initial reports suggest the incident may have started with a fight inside of the bar, and an investigation is ongoing, according to the post.

BPD said the suspect fled the scene after hitting the man and was driving a "silver passenger car."

At the time this article was published, no arrests have been made in this incident, according to Billings Police Sgt. West.
