AST say that the victim of a hit-and-run followed the vehicle that hit him and then left the scene of the accident without stopping, reported the location of the suspect vehicle on Tuesday evening.

Troopers and Wildlife troopers responded to Fairview Loop Road where the victim reported the vehicle to be after the hit-and-run and made contact with the driver of the vehicle, a 2002 Ford F-350 construction truck, towing a trailer, which was leaking fluid and had suffered “heavy front-end damage.”
