GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. – A Greensboro man was injured after being rear-ended by a driver Saturday night in Guilford County, according to North Carolina State Highway Patrol.

The incident was reported at about 7 p.m. at McKnight Mill and Hines Chapel roads, according to Highway Patrol.

His wife says Chris Lipford was heading to the store, trying to turn left onto Hines Chapel Road, when he got hit from behind and the driver took off.

Lipford sustained a non-life-threatening injury after being rear-ended while trying to make a left turn onto Hines Chapel Road. He fractured his hips and broke his pelvis and underwent successful surgery at Moses Cone Hospital.

"If it was their family member, their spouse, their dad, their anybody they love, they would not want anybody to do this," said Jennifer Lipford, Chris' wife. "They would want someone to come forward."

Highway patrol is looking for a burgundy Mercedes in connection to the hit-and-run.
