Yesterday,the Fort Bragg Police Department released an image of the vehicle suspected in a hit and run collision with a pedestrian on the morning of Tuesday, October 12, 2021.
According to a Facebook post on the FBPD’s Facebook page, investigators continue to interview witnesses and review surveillance footage of the intersection of Main Street and Oak Street where a 39-year-old Fort Bragg was struck causing significant injuries to his face and head.
The suspect vehicle is described as the “white vehicle pictured center,” by the Fort Bragg Police Department. Though FBPD did not release a make and model of the vehicle, social media comments and a comparison with photographs of the 2018-2020 Subaru Outback bear a striking resemblance to the vehicle portrayed in the image.
As to the injuries suffered by the 39-year-old, his sister-in-law Grace Potter told us he was in the hospital for four hours on Monday and was able to return home that evening. Potter said, “most of the injures are to his face/head” including a fractured orbital, broken front teeth, significant cuts/scrapes on his face, a possible concussion, and shoulder pain.
The FBPD Facebook post urged “the driver or owner of this vehicle to contact the department immediately.” If anyone has information, they are asked to contact FBPD Officer Lopez at 707-964-0200 and Reference case # FA21001047.
