Police in Clarksville have been searching for a suspect who allegedly carjacked a man and hit him with his own vehicle.

The crime happened on Zinc Plant Road just before 11 p.m. Monday.

Authorities said they arrived at the scene to find the victim, a man in his early 40s, sitting on the side of the road.

He lost consciousness, but he was able to tell investigators he had been hit by a vehicle before that happened. The man was taken by helicopter to a Nashville hospital where he was last listed in critical condition.

According to reports, it’s believed the victim, who was driving a 1995 white Ford Explorer, was carjacked. The suspect then reportedly hit the victim with the Explorer while fleeing from the scene.

Anyone with information on this crime has been urged to call Investigator Al Maynard at 931-648-0611, extension 13411, or Crime Stoppers at 931-645-TIPS (931-645-8477).
