Shreveport Police Search For Hit-And-Run Suspect [PHOTO]

A hit-and-run in late December has left one woman recovering and a suspect on the lam.

Back on December 29, 2016, a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle as she was crossing the street after exiting a Sportran bus. The vehicle then fled the scene. It all happened near the intersection of Linwood Ave and W. 72nd Street.

Cpl Marcus Hines, spokesman for the Shreveport Police Department tells us what happened after officers arrived at the scene:

It was learned the victim, an adult female, was exiting a Sportran bus and was attempting to cross the street when a white Chevrolet Caprice sedan, traveling along Linwood Avenue, struck the woman, sending her through the air. Fortunately the woman’s injuries were not considered life-threatening; however, the driver of the car did not stick around to render aid.

Authorities with the Shreveport Police Department’s Crash investigations were able to recover an image of the suspect’s vehicle and are hopeful it’s release to the public will assist in identifying the driver responsible for the careless act.

Authorities believe that the vehicle frequents the area and may be easier to spot due to the car’s aftermarket sunroof. Persons with any information about the crime are urged to contact Crimestoppers at (318) 673-7373 or visit their website at
