Crawford County authorities are searching for a hit and run vehicle that fled the scene of a crash at the intersection of Mercer Pike and Adamsville Road in Greenwood Township a week ago. On Friday, May 27th, at about 11:30 AM, the driver of a vehicle only described as a Chevrolet 1500 pickup ignored a stop sign and drove directly through the intersection and into the front driver’s side of a Jeep Cherokee which was disabled by the crash. The pickup’s driver backed away from the crash and then drove off to the south along Mercer Pike at a high rate of speed. Anybody with information should contact the Pennsylvania State Police in Meadville.
The Pennsylvania State Police released their traffic enforcement numbers for a rowdy Memorial Day weekend and they were quite busy. From May 27th to the 30th the State Police reported 526 DUI arrests, investigated 775 crashes including three fatal ones, and issued more than 28,000 citations including 11,000 citations for speeding or driving without seatbelts.
