A man was rushed to the hospital Friday after being struck by a hit-and-run driver on Broad Street in front of DeGennaro’s Restaurant in South Greensburg.

A man was taken to Forbes Hospital in Monroeville after being struck by a vehicle in a hit-and-run Friday night in South Greensburg.

The incident occurred after 7:30 p.m. on Broad Street in front of DeGennaro’s Restaurant and Lounge, which the man had patronized immediately before being struck.

South Greensburg Fire Chief Eric Hardy said the man was “lying on the roadway” when firefighters responded and was “alive and breathing” when he was loaded onto an ambulance for transport.

Restaurant patrons who rushed outside when they heard the man’s companions scream said he was bleeding profusely.

A description of the vehicle involved wasn’t available.

South Greensburg police declined to comment Friday evening, saying their investigation was in its infancy.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
