SAN ANTONIO -

A bar fight could be the motive behind a hit-and-run on the West Side that left a man in critical condition, San Antonio police say.

A group of men were kicked out of Rumor's Lounge in the 5100 block of W. Commerce around 11:30 p.m. Sunday, San Antonio police said.

Three men were walking home about a block away from the bar when a beige or tan Chevy S10 pickup truck drove on the sidewalk and struck one of the men from behind.

The victim was dragged and pushed into a telephone pole, San Antonio police said. 

Investigators determined the victim was involved in the bar fight. He was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries.

The driver of the truck is sought and police are investigating whether more people were involved in the hit-and-run.
