Fort Bragg Police Seize Vehicle After ‘Observing Damage Consistent with the Hit and Run Collision’ that Left 38-Year-Old Man with Serious Injuries


As per a press release issued yesterday by the Fort Bragg Police Department, the investigation into the hit and run driver who struck 38-year-old Brandon Brazor around noon on October 12, 2021, causing serious injuries continues to evolve. 

The press release describes an officer observing a “vehicle of interest” yesterday around 4:00 p.m. and initiating a traffic stop. Officers observed damages on the vehicle “consistent with the hit and run collision.” Officers had the vehicle “towed as evidence” while the “driver was cooperating with the investigating officers.” 

In upcoming days, the press release state officers “will be continuing with interviews of the potential driver.”

The investigation into the hit and run has been well-publicized by the Fort Bragg Police Department. Last last week into the weekend FBPD had been searching for a white vehicle it had identified as a vehicle of interest in the case but on Sunday announced that vehicle had been ruled out after interviewing the driver and corroborating their statements.

Grace Potter, the sister-in-law of Brandon Brazor said her brother-in-law was in the hospital for four hours and was able to return home the evening of the accident. 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.

Fort Bragg Mayor Bernie Norvell has set up a donation account with the Savings Bank of Mendocino to support Brazor as he faces medical expenses. 

Any Mendocino County residents willing to support Brandon, take any of your donations to the Savings Bank of Mendocino or mail a check referencing Account #04254355.
