Fall River Police are looking for the public’s help in capturing a hit and run suspect.
According to Detective John Robinson, on February 3rd at approximately 9:30 p.m., Fall River Police Officers responded to the intersection of Rodman Street at Plymouth Avenue in response to a hit and run collision. Witnesses reported that a dark blue Ford F-series 250/350 Super Duty was stopped in the right turn lane on the northeast corner of the intersection, while a 24-year-old Fall River resident was seated on his scooter in the center lane to go straight. When the light turned green, the truck accelerated straight ahead, sideswiping the male on the scooter, causing him to crash. The truck stopped, a male exited, looked at the collision, then retreated to the truck, fleeing the area north on Hartwell Street.
The scooter operator was transported to Rhode Island Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
At this time FRPD is looking for a dark blue Ford F-250/350 with a utility body, light blue lettering on the side, utility style light bar, and Rhode Island registration plates.
Anyone with information is asked to contact FRPD Officer John Aguiar at 508-676-8511; JAGUIAR@FRPD.ORG or contact the FRPD anonymously by calling on the tips line at 508-672-8477(TIPS).
