This happened at 4:27 AM at the intersection of Caster Ave. and Loney Street.  A blue car was north,  hit the pedestrian and continued before turning right onto Ripley Street.



The pedestrian, a ho9meless male was rushed to Jefferson Hospital, Torresdale Division, in very critical condition with head wounds.  Police are combing the area looking for security footage or possibly doorbell camera footage.
