The victims in Monday night's hit and run crash remain hospitalized today as the California Highway Patrol continues seeking the driver that ran them down in a crosswalk.

Harison Long-Randall, 21, who lost a leg in the crash, is listed in critical condition at Mercy San Juan Hospital. His girlfriend, Gemily West, 23, is in fair condition, spokeswoman Melissa Jue said this morning.

The couple were struck down in a crosswalk Monday night about 10 p.m. at Engle Road and Garfield Avenue. The CHP is searching for a 1986 or 1987 Nissan Maxima with light-brown metallic paint. Investigators say the vehicle is missing its driver's side mirror and has damage to the left side running lights and turn signal light.

Anyone with information is asked to call the CHP at (916) 338-6710 or (916) 861-1300 after hours.
