— Police charged a Knightdale man on Tuesday in connection with a hit-and-run last week that critically injured a Clayton man.

Douglas John Fishman, 44, no address available, was charged with hit and run causing personal injury. He was released after posting a $10,000 bond.

Kenneth Clark, 51, was sitting near the roadway at the intersection of West Main and Mulberry streets on Thursday night when he was hit, police said. According to witnesses, Clark was hit by a utility trailer being pulled by a white pickup truck – possibly a Ford F-150.

Clark remains in the intensive care unit at WakeMed in Raleigh. He suffered multiple bone fractures in his back and ribs and has undergone four surgeries.

Police said Fishman called the Clayton Police Department on Monday after hearing media reports of the hit-and-run investigation.
