A 21-year-old woman was struck by a vehicle on Ocean Drive and the vehicle that struck her left without providing any aid.

A 21-year-old woman jogged on the 6400 block of Ocean Drive and crossed the street from Swantner Park to Poenisch Drive. Witnesses told Police Officers that a light-colored, possibly tan, sport utility vehicle traveled on Ocean Drive toward Ennis Joslin Road and struck the woman jogger. Witnesses told Police Officers that the sport utility vehicle traveled a block away from the crash and slowed as if to turn around. Witnesses said the sport utility vehicle waited a moment, and then sped away toward Ennis Joslin Road.

The woman jogger was taken by ambulance to the hospital with serious injuries.

Corpus Christi Police Hit and Run Investigators recovered evidence from the scene and are now searching for a late 1990's model GMC Suburban or Chevy Tahoe with front end damage to include a missing passenger side head light assembly. Corpus Christi Police Investigators are searching for residential surveillance recordings from the area homes that may have captured images of this crash.

Anyone with additional information about this crime should call Corpus Christi Police Hit and Run Investigators immediately. Anyone with information should not assume that investigators have the information, so the information should be shared without delay. Tips may be made anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS (8477) or online at www.888TIPS.com.
