The 90-year-old pedestrian suffered a serious head injury during the incident on Friday evening.
He was crossing Liverpool Road in Longton, close to the Booths supermarket, when a Mini One collided with the man.
Traffic was brought to a halt at around 5.25pm on Friday (2 December) as police closed the road for two hours.
A man in a hi-vis coat was seen walking past Booths and may have seen all or part of the collision.
PS Nigel Ralphson, of the Roads Policing Unit, said: “This was a serious collision which has left an elderly man in a critical condition in hospital.
“We would now urge anybody who saw the collision, or who saw either the pedestrian or the Mini One in the moments prior to it happening, to contact us immediately.
“In particular we would like to speak to the man in the high-vis jacket who was walking in the area at the time. If you know who he is, or indeed if you are the man in question, please make contact with us as soon as possible.”
Anybody with information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting log number 1130 of December 2nd.
