Hit and Run Accident Involving an Armed Motorist
Early in the morning on April 9th, a man in a black Ford Fusion crashed into an off-duty postal worker’s vehicle. The woman in the vehicle was uninjured in the crash. The driver who caused the accident did not remain on the scene, and the postal worker followed the driver for several blocks before he stopped. When the woman confronted the driver, he showed her a handgun in his waistband. The postal worker returned to her vehicle and called the police for assistance.
Police officers on the scene found the Ford Fusion which caused the accident, but the driver had abandoned the car. The black Ford Fusion matches the description of a vehicle that was reported stolen the previous Monday. The identity of the armed driver is still unknown and police officers do not have a detailed description of the man at this time.
