Rehoboth Beach Police are asking for the assistance of anyone who may have witnessed a hit-and-run that occurred on North First Street on Sunday evening.
Officers responded to the scene of the collision, just outside Nicola Pizza, around 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 21, and located two damaged vehicles. One of the vehicles, a gray 2008 Toyota Rav4 with Delaware registration, was found resting on its driver side in the southbound lane of North First Street. Both vehicles involved were inoperable and were towed from the scene.
Through investigative efforts, officers determined that the Toyota was traveling southbound on First Street when it left the roadway and struck a legally parked gray 2018 Mercedes CLA 250. The impact caused the Toyota to roll. The driver was assisted out of the vehicle by a witness and subsequently fled the scene on foot. The suspect driver was last seen headed west on Baltimore Avenue. A search for the suspect was unsuccessful.
