Paragould police are seeking information from the public on a hit and run accident that left a man in the hospital with serious injuries. 

According to a post on the Paragould Police Department's Facebook page, police went to North 11th Avenue at around 5 p.m. Tuesday after getting a call about a man lying in the ditch. 

The man, who was identified as Ronald Pruett of Paragould, was bleeding from the head and officers went to help him.
