Hit and run accident, 03/23/11 1:05 PM, small red pickup truck, 5500 block of Allentown Blvd.

DATE: Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Lower Paxton Township Police are investigating a hit and run traffic crash that occurred this afternoon at about 1:05 PM in the 5500 block of Allentown Blvd. The driver of a white Honda Pilot was westbound on RT 22 and was in the process of making a right turn into a business on the north side of the road. As he was doing so, he observed a small red pick up truck coming up behind him at a high rate of speed. The pick up truck actually swerved to the right, jumped the curb, struck the Pilot on its passenger side in the parking lot of the business before driving back over the curb to continue westbound at a high rate of speed. The crash caused moderate damage to the Pilot and, it is believed, to the left front quarter panel and front end of the red pick up truck. Anyone with information that will assist in identifying the vehicle and driver is asked to call the police at (717) 657-5656 or the anonymous Tip-Line at (717) 724-8317.
