NORTH LAS VEGAS - North Las Vegas Police released photos of a pickup truck that was possibly involved in a hit-and-run crash Friday morning. 

The wreck happened around 5:45 a.m. on N. Las Vegas Boulevard between Lake Mead Boulevard and Tonopah Avenue.

The driver of the pickup truck critically injured a man walking in the area, police said.  The preliminary investigation indicates the pedestrian was crossing Las Vegas Boulevard North when he was struck by a vehicle.   That vehicle left the scene of the crash, police said. 

Medical responders rushed the male victim to University Medical Center Trauma with critical injuries.  North Las Vegas Police investigators say they need the public's help finding the driver who left the scene of the crash.

The suspect vehicle has been described as a late 90's full size, extended cab, Chevrolet 1500, long bed pickup truck with chrome rims and the word "Chevrolet" across the tailgate.  The truck should have a broken right front headlamp and passenger side mirror. 

The rear license plate is either mounted at an angle or is hanging by a screw.  The truck may have previous hood damage or paint fade/wear on the center hood.
