Last year, there were 1,800 hit and run accidents in the City of Corpus Christi. Many of them go unsolved, but police are asking for your help to solve one of those accidents.
It was around 8:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 5, when a 21-year old woman jogging on Ocean Drive by Palmetto Park was struck by a light colored sport utility vehicle while crossing the street at the intersection of Ocean Drive and Poenisch.
The vehicle traveled a block past the crash, stopped for a moment, then sped away toward Ennis Joslin Road without offering any aid to the woman. The woman was transported to the hospital by ambulance with serious injuries.
Police have information from several witnesses, and have obtained video of the actual crash. The suspect vehicle is described as a light colored Chevy Blazer or GMC Jimmy with front end damage.
Investigators now need your help to locate the vehicle and the individual responsible for the accident.
