Update: Vehicle Smashed On Stewart Street In Sonora
Update at 8:20am: A hit and run vehicle accident on South Stewart Street was one of several incidents that kept the Sonora Police Department busy overnight. The PD reports that a silver or gray sedan traveling south on Stewart Street veered into a parked SUV near the Lytton Street intersection. It caused major damage to the parked vehicle. The suspect fled the scene, but the PD was able to get witness statements regarding the crash and officials are working to identify the driver. It happened at around midnight.
The owner of the damaged Toyota 4 Runner has contacted Clarke Broadcasting and stated that she only had liability insurance on the vehicle, so she is really hoping the person responsible is caught. Anyone with information should contact the Sonora PD at 532-8141.
