Minneapolis Police are searching for a driver who appeared to intentionally hit a pedestrian with their car after an argument in a Minneapolis bar, then drove off, leaving the victim seriously injured in the street.

The department says in a news release that police were called to the 2500 block of Lyndale Avenue South shortly before 2 a.m. Friday, after reports of a person getting hit by a car. Responders found the man, identified as 39-year-old Tarrince Emmanuel Winbush, lying in the street with serious injuries – he was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, but police did not give his condition.

According to police, the victim and the suspect got into an argument at the Bulldog Uptown bar, near the intersection of Lyndale Avenue and 26th Street. The conflict spilled onto the street, and at that point, the suspect then got into a car and "with apparent intent," hit Winbush.

The driver struck a scooter and another parked car before fleeing south down Lyndale Avenue, police say. The vehicle was caught on surveillance video, and is described as a maroon four-door with a dark roof; possibly a Town Car or a Mercury Marquis style vehicle.

FOX 9 and KSTP both spoke with witnesses who detailed the incident.

Bryan Johnson, a night manager at the bar, told FOX 9 the car appeared to be going 50-60 mph when the victim was struck.
