A man was struck by a vehicle Monday after confronting the driver over a minor collision moments earlier in a shopping center parking lot, police said.

The incident began at the Fry's supermarket parking lot at East Irvington Road and South Campbell Avenue, said Sgt. Chris Widmer, a Tucson Police Department spokesman.

There was a minor crash in the parking lot, and the person who caused the crash fled the lot, while the victims followed in their vehicle, Widmer said.

The suspect's vehicle stopped at South Tucson Boulevard and East Irvington Road, and a man who was a passenger in the victim's vehicle got out and confronted the suspect's vehicle, said Widmer.

During the confrontation, the man was struck by the suspect's vehicle, which fled the scene.

The man was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Widmer said.

He said the fleeing vehicle was described as a blue or green, four-door Volkswagen. 

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
