Police Search for Driver in Hit & Run in Sparks

Posted: Updated:

Sparks police are looking for a driver involved in a hit and run accident Friday night.

According to police, they responded to a call of a vehicle going through a fence in the 1800 block of Spanish Springs Road around 7:30 p.m.

When they arrived, they found a silver Toyota Corolla with front-end and rear-end damage. They say the driver of that vehicle was headed northbound and had pulled to the side of the road and stopped briefly.

Police say a vehicle headed south drifted across the road and hit the Toyota, causing damage to both ends, and pushing it into a nearby fence.

They say the driver was not injured but the second vehicle fled the scene.

Police are looking for a light-colored, older model Jeep, possibly a Cherokee. They say it should have front end damage, and is missing the grill and one headlight.

If you have any information please call the Sparks Police Department Traffic Section at (775) 353-2432.
