WATCH: Raw surveillance video of incident

The investigation revealed just prior to the incident, the victim drove into the station lot when a gray Honda Accord pulled in front of him, causing the victim to drive around the Accord to avoid a crash.

As the victim was then walking from the gas pumps towards the store, the suspect drove around the parking lot and approached the victim at a high rate of speed.

The vehicle stopped just short of the victim and then continued forward, striking him with the driver's side bumper.

The victim fell to the ground and was run over by the suspect vehicle causing the victim to suffer significant injuries.

The suspect vehicle was last seen driving out of the parking lot westbound on Flamingo.

The suspect vehicle is described as a 2010 or 2011 dark gray Honda Accord with tint on the rear windows only. It has a California license plate that begins with "6C."

The driver could only be described as a white man in his 30s with a medium build and was last seen wearing a gray hoodie.

Anyone with information on this incident or the suspect, is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
