CONCORD, N.C. —

The Concord Police Department is seeking help in investigation of a hit-and-run motor vehicle accident that occurred at Concord Parkway at the intersection of Carpenter Court. 
 
The crash resulted in serious injury.
 
A Chevrolet Corvette driven by Silvio Joseph Cadolino, 61, was traveling south on Concord Parkway at about 4:15 p.m. Sunday when a vehicle traveling north on Concord Parkway turned onto Carpenter Court and struck the Corvette.  The Corvette overturned, injuring Cadolino. The other driver did not stop.

Investigators said the other vehicle was a Ford Aerostar van or similar vehicle.  The vehicle should have minor damage to the left front quarter or bumper area, according to police.
 
Hospital officials last listed Cadolino in critical condition at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.
 
"My heart breaks for the family and we're all praying for them," said Beth Bruce who has lived next door to the Cadolino family for 16 years. "I saw him just before his accident. He had just finished mowing his lawn and decided to go for a drive."
 
Bruce said she went to visit Cadolino in the hospital Thursday.
 
"His family said he opened his eyes and then opened them again when the doctor asked him too," she said. "I hope the driver is caught soon."
 
Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call Cabarrus Area Crime Stoppers at 704-932-7463 or the Concord Police Department at 704-920-5000. 

A reward for information is offered through Crime Stoppers.
