Police Search For Hit-and-Run Driver

A driver struck a vehicle while changing lanes near 27th and College and fled the scene as the snow started to fall Thursday.

A vehicle changing lanes near 27th Street and College Avenue struck a car and fled the scene about 5:20 p.m. Thursday.

The car that was struck sustained moderate damage to its front passenger side, according to the Oak Creek Police Department logbook. The accident did not cause injuries, though the driver requested an ambulance for chest pains, according to the report.

The offending vehicle was described as a maroon full-size GMC or Chevy conversion van. It likely has damage on the driver's side.

The accident happened just as the snow started falling Thursday. Another accident was reported about five minutes later when a driver in the 10200 block of S. Howell Avenue lost control of the vehicle, went off the road and knocked down a fence.

Police cited the driver for driving too fast for conditions.

The snow was also a factor in a power outage near Shepard Avenue and Puetz Road, as well as in the Parkway Estates subdivision, reported about 10:20 p.m.

Otherwise, the weather did not appear to cause any major incidents in Oak Creek.
