    Joseph Wilno suffered a critical head injury after being struck by a car.

    The search for a hit and run driver who gathered up broken car pieces but left the victim on the side of the road continues. 

    A passerby discovered Joseph Wilno lying unconscious in the snow on West Marlton Pike near Cropwell Road in Evesham Township Monday.
