Oklahoma Baseball Player Hurt in Arkansas Hit-and-Run

Authorities are investigating after a college baseball player was seriously injured after he was struck in an apparent hit-and-run in southern Arkansas.

Arkansas State Police said 20-year-old Joseph Cerda Jr, of San Antonio, was hit by the driver of a dark-colored car Saturday night in Monticello, about 80 miles southeast of Little Rock.

Cerda is a member of Southeastern Oklahoma State's baseball team, which had played a game Saturday at Arkansas-Monticello.

State police said Cerda and his teammates were walking across a highway to go to a restaurant when he was struck by a car that did not stop. Cerda was taken to a Monticello hospital and later airlifted to a Little Rock hospital.

His condition Monday was not immediately available. No arrests have been announced.
