Hit-and-Run America, Vol. DCCCXCIX

An ongoing collection of unsolved hit-and-run cases, with a focus on car/pedestrian incidents, from across the country since Jan. ‘010. If you know something about any of these incidents, or one that I’ve missed, do the right thing and call the police, even anonymously. After a respite from keeping the list, it restarted in January 2019, highlighting one case a day. If there’s a case you’ve seen that deserves highlighting, drop me a line at hickey@brianphickey.com.

12642. “I heard a car hit something, then it went silent and then I heard sirens,” said 17-year-old resident Glenn Schrage who lives next to Davis Road. “And then, we went out here and the cops came and that’s when the blanket went over the guy.”

12653. I tried to help get information about the case by emailing the District Attorney’s Office. “We generally do not comment on or even confirm the existence of criminal investigations until such time as an arrest is made or warrant is issued,” spokesperson Jane Roh said via email. A spokesperson for the Philadelphia Police Department informed me that “the incident is still under internal affairs investigation.”
