Westport Police investigating hit-and-run crash that left father and son injured



Westport Police are looking for the public’s help concerning a hit-and-run crash.

According to WPD, on Sunday, at approximately 4:50 p.m., Westport Police Officers responded to Route 88, north of the Drift Road intersection, mile marker 3.4, and investigated a motor vehicle crash.

After an investigation, it was determined there were two vehicles involved, a black 2019 Ford F-150 and a silver sedan that fled the scene.

Witnesses told police that both vehicles were traveling south when the silver sedan attempted to pass the pickup truck, lost control and started to skid. The sedan was unable to pass the pickup truck because vehicles were traveling north in the opposite lane. With no room to pass, the silver sedan crashed into the driver side of the pickup truck, forcing the truck off the road and into the woods. The silver sedan never stopped, continuing south on Route 88.

The pickup truck was occupied by a 44-year-old man and his 10-year-old son who were both transported to Charlton Memorial Hospital for minor injuries.

The incident is being investigated by Officer Michael Chicca

Westport Police are asking the public for help identifying the operator of the silver sedan and location of the vehicle. Anyone with information regarding this hit and run motor vehicle crash is asked to call the Westport Police Department 508-636-1122.
