ROCHESTER, N.H. — A 44-year-old male pedestrian was airlifted to Maine Medical Center after a hit-and-run accident on Route 11 across the road from the Tractor Supply Store at approximately 6:45 p.m. Tuesday.

Police said the injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

A witness to the accident said a full-sized truck struck the unidentified man from behind.

Police confirmed the man had his back to the truck, as both were headed north, and was not in the roadway at the time when he was hit.

Police said they are seeking a full-sized older model truck of a darker color, possibly red. Additionally, the passenger side of the truck may have damage as officials found “a broken side mirror and directional” in the area.

The vehicle was last seen heading north toward Farmington.

Rochester police and fire and Frisbie Ambulance were on scene.

Police combed the site for evidence and considered calling in the Technical Accident Reconstruction team.

If anyone has any information, call Rochester Police Department at 330-7127.
