Hit And Run Driver Hurts Three in Grand Bahama
Police are still looking for the person who drove into three men as they walked along a Grand Bahama street early Saturday morning… then fled the scene.
The Bahamas has one of the highest rates of hit and run incidents in the world, a particularly disturbing statistic in a nation that heralds its Christianity.
According to police reports, a group of four men between ages 18 to 19 years, were walking east along East Sunrise Highway in the area of the East Sunrise Shopping Centre shortly after 1:00 a.m. when they were hit by a vehicle that ran off the northern side of the highway.
The driver of the vehicle fled the scene without even looking back.
One of the men, a resident of New Providence, did not sustain any injuries while another is listed in serious condition and the other two men are in stable condition.
Authorities said the vehicle was described as a silver or white Chevy Cobalt.
Police are asking anyone with information that can assist with their investigation into this incident to contact them at 919 or Crimestoppers at 328-TIPS.crime, police, society, traffic
