Park County Sheriff Search for Hit and Run Driver With Damaged Truck
Written by Andrew-Rossi on September 16, 2021
The Park County Sheriff’s Office is enlisting the public’s assistance in finding a hit and run driver in a significantly damaged red or orange pickup truck.
Once again, local law enforcement hopes the public might have tips or even footage that will catch the culprits for a crime. In this case, the Park County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a hit-and-run driver.
On August 25, 2021, someone driving a pickup truck (red or orange) drove into a fence along Sage Creek Road. After the accident, the truck fled down Sage Creek Road toward the Powell Highway.
It was a destructive accident – not just for the fence but for the driver.
The culprit left a significant portion of their truck behind at the scene of the crime. Several truck parts and other debris were discovered after the accident. A list of the discovered pieces includes:
- A driver’s side mirror assembly
- Glass scattered in the sagebrush
- A black driver’s side door handle
- A black LED taillight assembly
- A large chunk of broken glass determined to be from the front driver’s side window.
Also, a “significant amount” of red paint transfer was found on the wood rail fence.
Anyone having any information is encouraged to call the Park County Sheriff’s Office – or submit an anonymous tip online.
The Park County Sheriff’s Office can be reached directly at 307-754-8700 or 307-527-8700. The Park County Sheriff’s Office also offers an anonymous “Tip Line” that can be utilized thru their website.
