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.
