Driver in hit-andrun comes forward
LIMERICK >> The driver in a reported hit-and-run last weekend has come forward, according to authorities.
Limerick Police said in an updated post Tuesday that the driver of a silver Chevrolet Sonic that police allege struck two pedestrians over the weekend has contacted police and is now cooperating with the investigation.
Police have not publicly identified the driver and it is not yet clear if charges will be filed.
Police began investigating after a driver allegedly struck a man in a wheelchair, along with his caretaker, and fled the scene Sept. 30. The hit-and-run was reported at 7:16 p.m. Sept. 30 on the 100 block of Swamp Pike.
A 25-year-old male, who police say was the caretaker for the other victim, was pushing the 66-yearold male in a wheelchair along Swamp Pike when they were both struck by a vehicle.
The vehicle left the scene southbound toward West Ridge Pike without stopping or attempting to render aid, police said.
Police located debris left behind from the striking vehicle. Identification numbers on the debris identified the vehicle as a 2015-2016 Chevrolet Sonic, silver in color.
Police did not elaborate on the extent of the pedestrians’ injuries but stated that both victims were transported to Paoli Hospital by Trappe Ambulance.
Police were assisted on scene by the Limerick Township Fire Departments.
