ST. LOUIS, Mo. ( – A father and son were leaving the Blues game Tuesday night when they were the victims of a hit-and-run outside the Scottrade Center, police said.

Minutes before 10:00 p.m., the duo were walking westbound on Poplar across 18th when they were hit by a late-modeled red Chevrolet pick-up truck, possibly a Silverado with Illinois license plates, according to police.

The 19-year-old son and 49-year-old father were taken to a hospital and listed in stable condition after the hit-and-run.

The investigation is ongoing.
