HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- Hutchinson police are looking for the driver of a motorcycle that hit a man, injuring him so severely that part of his leg had to be amputated.
Twenty-six-year-old Jeffrey W. Nusser was hit by the motorcycle Saturday night as he crossed a street in Hutchinson.
Police Lt. John Moore says the driver of the motorcycle left the scene.
Nusser was flown to Via Christi Medical Center at St. Francis, where his right leg was amputated below the knee.
Moore says the motorcycle involved was a cruiser bike with ape-hanger handle bars.
