VIERA, Fla. – A 31-year-old Melbourne man is being treated for serious injuries after a hit-and-run Saturday evening at U.S. 1 and Viera Boulevard, according to News 6 partner Florida Today.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers are now looking for a red Chrysler 200 convertible they say failed to yield when turning left from U.S. 1 onto Viera Boulevard and drove directly into the path of Alexander Marchica who was southbound just before 8 p.m. 

Marchica struck the side of the convertible and was ejected from his motorcycle.
