Police seek car, suspects involved in hit-and-run of two pedestrians
Charleston police are searching for a driver struck who struck a pair of pedestrians and then took off on King Street.
Police spokesman Charles Francis said Monday that witnesses reported seeing the driver go through the intersection of King and Spring Streets and strike two women.
Page Jourdan of Anderson and Ashley Hesseldahl of Danbridge, Tenn., were walking along the crosswalk when they were hit about 2 a.m. Aug. 25, an incident report said.
One witness told police the driver hit one of the women with the front end of his car, pushing her onto the hood of the vehicle. She then rolled off toward the sidewalk. The second victim was struck with the forward fender and pushed to the sidewalk, according to the report.
The victims, both 22, were taken to Medical University Hospital, where they were treated and released, authorities said.
Investigators are looking for a dark-colored Honda Accord, possibly a model from the 2000s. Witnesses told police there were white men in the car.
“The vehicle should have front end damage, especially on the hood area,” Francis said.
Anyone with information regarding this case should contact Officer Octavio Fabisiewicz at 965-4084.
