Posted: Updated:

Portland Police are looking for a man responsible for hitting another man with his car at an Arco gas station Friday afternoon.

Police said it happened around 4 p.m. at the corner of Portsmouth and Lombard in north Portland. 

A gas attendant said he saw two men arguing before the crash happened. 

According to witnesses, the driver rammed into a man sitting on the wall outside the station and drove off in a white car.

Police said the victim suffered a broken leg and was taken to a local hospital. He is expected to recover.

Some damage was down inside the Arco gas station store. A rack was knocked over, and broken wine bottle and glass filled the aisles.

Police are still looking for the suspect.

This is not the first time a crash has happened at this Arco gas station. 

The owner told Fox 12 a car smashed into the side of the station about three months ago. The owner said he feels it's simply bad luck.
