Longview Police Traffic Investigators are seeking information from the public about an accident that left few clues and a 16-year-old in the hospital.
At around 3:30 a.m. on July 8, 2010, a black Lexus 4-door passenger car was traveling northbound in the 900 block of South 14th Street when it struck the 16-year-old victim, who had been standing in the roadway. The impact caused the victim to travel approximately ten feet before landing in the roadway. The Lexus did not stop after the accident and was last seen turning eastbound onto Ridgelea Avenue.
The victim was initially transported to Good Shepherd Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries by the Longview Fire Department, but was later transferred to Parkland Hospital in Dallas for treatment.
Traffic Investigators are asking anyone with information about this accident to contact Gregg County Crime Stoppers at 903-236-STOP or online at www.greggcountycrimestoppers.com. Investigators believe the Lexus involved may possibly have damage to the front bumper, hood or windshield.
Crime Stoppers may pay up to $1000.00 for information leading to the arrest of the driver in this case.
