RACINE COUNTY - A man is recovering after being hit by a car in Racine.

Shortly after midnight, the call came in that a man in his early 30's was bleeding from the back of his head in the 400 block of S. Front Street in the Village of Rochester. The caller said that he heard someone yell for help, then heard arguing, and then heard a loud sound like a gunshot or someone being hit by a vehicle. He also reported seeing a vehicle drive away from the scene.

It was determined that the victim had been hit by a vehicle. He was later taken by Flight for Life to Froedtert Hospital where his current medical condition is unknown.

The driver later returned to the scene.
