Police seek information in alleged hit-and-run


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

The Roswell Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying a vehicle that fled after allegedly causing a crash early Monday afternoon at the intersection of South Virginia Avenue and East Summit Street.

The hit-and-run crash involved three vehicles and occurred a few minutes after noon, according to an RPD press release.

An RPD accident investigator said the suspect vehicle was traveling south on Virginia when it failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection and struck the side of a car that was traveling east on Summit and proceeding through the intersection.

That car was pushed into an SUV that was facing north on Virginia and was stopped at a stop sign on that side of the intersection.

The two vehicles other than the suspect vehicle were each occupied by only the driver. The driver of the car was taken to a hospital with what were believed to be non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the SUV was uninjured.

People at the scene gave conflicting descriptions of the suspect vehicle that fled after the crash.

“RPD would like to hear from anyone who may have seen the suspect vehicle during or immediately after the crash or who may receive information about any vehicle that was possibly involved in the crash and fled,” the press release states. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the RPD Traffic Division at 575-624-6770.
