A 23-year-old male sustained severe head trauma after being hit by a vehicle in the 900 block of Delaware Avenue in Philadelphia's Fishtown section just before 2 a.m. Sunday.

Police say the victim, whose identity was not released, was involved in an altercation with bouncers from a nearby nightclub when he was struck by a blue Honda exiting the parking lot.

He was taken to Hahnemann University Hospital, where he was in critical condition after surgery, police said.

The driver fled the scene but was later taken into custody. Police did not release the driver's identity, but said charges are pending.
