A hit-and-run lands a man in the hospital and the suspect in jail.

It happened Friday around 3:30 in the afternoon on North Washington Street in Vicksburg.

Officers discovered 64-year-old Neal Hull had been struck by a vehicle as he was sweeping the parking lot of J and B Variety Store. Hull was transported to UMC in Jackson, where he has undergone numerous surgeries for his injuries. UMC officials tell us Hull is in Good Condition.

Investigators believe 40-year-old George Parker was the driver of the vehicle that ran over Hull then fled the scene.

Parker was arrested and charged with leaving the scene of an accident. He's being held at the Issaquena County Jail and is expected to appear in court Monday.
