LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock Police are searching for the suspects they say fled the scene after hitting a pedestrian with a pickup truck.

Police responded to a call that a pedestrian had been struck by a pickup truck near 94th Street and University Avenue around 10:30 Wednesday night. 

When officers arrived, they found emergency personnel treating 18-year-old Esteven Flores who was lying in the street. Flores was taken to University Medical Center to be treated for his injuries.  

Officers questioned witnesses and others who were with Flores at the time of the incident. Right now, LPD says the circumstances surrounding the incident are unclear. In their initial investigation, they say it appears Flores was speaking with someone in the pickup truck and an altercation occurred. LPD says the truck then sped off, injuring Flores, who was possibly holding onto the truck. 

Right now LPD is still searching for the suspects who fled the scene. This is an ongoing investigation. 

We'll continue to update this story as we learn more.
