Police Search For Hit-And-Run Vehicle

Thirty-year-old Timothy K. Messner of Needmore informed state police he was the victim of a hit-and-run accident while travelling along Sipes Mill Road last Wednesday.

Messner told police he was travelling southbound at 6:35 p.m. when an oncoming red car crossed the centerline and struck the driver’s side of his 1993 Chevrolet Silverado. Messner stopped in hopes of exchanging information with the other driver, who turned his vehicle around and was last seen travelling southbound. The unknown vehicle is described as possibly being a red Chevrolet Cavalier or Mercury Cougar.

Messner and his passenger, who was not identified by police, were both wearing seat belts and escaped harm.
