Hit and Run Driver Flees From Police

On March 10, 2022, at about 2350 hours, a black sedan, believed to be a 2014 – 2016 Kia Forte with an unknown Delaware registration, was observed traveling the wrong way on New London Road.  Officers attempted to stop the vehicle.  The vehicle collided with a parked car and drove around a patrol vehicle and fled.

The vehicle continued the wrong way on West Main St and fled northbound on North College Avenue. The vehicle may have white paint transfer or other damage along the front right side. The operator of the vehicle was discovered to have been at the Deer Park Tavern just before this incident occurred.

The operator is described as a black female, age 20’s or 30’s and wearing a black sweatshirt and multicolored galaxy style leggings with white sneakers. The suspect is believed to have short brown or black hair.
