BPD looking for hit-and-run driver

The Bremerton Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying a vehicle and that vehicle’s driver, which were involved in an injury hit-and-run collision that occurred Nov. 13 in the 3600 block of Wheaton Way.

At approximately 6:23 p.m. that evening, an adult male pedestrian was attempting to cross Wheaton way when he was struck by a vehicle that was traveling northbound on Wheaton Way in the 3600 block.

The vehicle that struck the pedestrian stopped, but as other vehicles stopped, the suspect vehicle fled northbound at a high rate of speed.

“Based upon witness statements and evidence recovered at the scene, we believe that the suspect vehicle is a white, 2000-2005, Chevrolet Impala With large chrome wheels,” said BPD spokesman Lt. Peter Fisher.

There should be damage to the right side mirror, Fisher added.

Anyone with any information regarding the vehicle or the driver of the vehicle at the time of the collision is urged to contact Officer Donnell Rogers of the Bremerton Police Traffic Unit at 360-473-5495.
