Lake Charles, LA –
On December 25 at approximately 6:40 p.m. Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to an area on North Perkins Ferry Road just south of Poeyfarre Drive in Moss Bluff in reference to a pedestrian/vehicle accident.
The initial investigation revealed the pedestrian was walking northbound on N. Perkins Ferry Road when she was hit from behind by a vehicle that was traveling north, which left the scene.
The vehicle is believed to have minor damages to the passenger side headlight area and front right quarter panel.
The victim was transported to a local hospital. She was treated for multiple broken bones and later released.
Deputies have attempted to identify the suspect vehicle, but have been unsuccessful and are asking anyone with information to call CPSO Lt. Bryan Guth at (337) 491-3846.
An arrest is an indication that probable cause exists to believe the subject was involved in the offense alleged. A person is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
