    A horse is unlikely to live after a hit-and-run driver rammed into its trailer in Concord on Tuesday.

    The driver of a grey Toyota Tundra collided with the back of a horse trailer that was being pulled by a Ford F-150 on Kirker Pass Road around 7:30 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

    The man was picked up by someone driving a white sedan, and escaped from the scene before CHP officers arrived on the scene. The horse was severely injured and is not expected to survive, the CHP said.

    The suspect is described as having a shaved head and tattoos on both arms up to his neck, the CHP said.

    People with information about this case are asked to call the CHP’s Contra Costa area office at 925-646-4980.
