As reported on this website, Columbia Township Police say a hit and run incident damaged fencing along the Township Park on Hyde Road. Police Chief David Elwell indicated at the time that they were investigating. This morning, he issued this statement:
“Sometime in the overnight hours from Wednesday night through Thursday morning, a southbound vehicle left the roadway and struck the chain link fence in front of the Township Hyde Road park. The accident tore down the fence, and damaged signs that were attached to the fence. The driver left the scene without stopping and identifying themselves. Evidence at the scene indicates the vehicle was an approximately 1998 to 2004 full-sized Chrysler product, such as the Intrepid, LHS, or Concorde. The vehicle is silver in color, with a missing mirror. In addition to the missing passenger side mirror, the vehicle should have substantial front end damage, including the top portion of one of the front fenders having the top completely cut off by the chain link fence, like a can opener. We ask that anyone with information on this accident or vehicle/driver contact the Columbia Township Police Department at 517-592-3122.
