HARRISVILLE, Utah, May 20, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Harrisville Police officials are searching for a driver who fled the scene of an auto-pedestrian accident on Larsen Lane in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Officials responded to an auto-pedestrian accident at 1 a.m. where the driver of the vehicle left the scene, said a news release from Harrisville Police Department on Facebook.

The victim is a 34-year-old male from the Ogden area, the news release said. The victim sustained multiple non life-threatening injures and remains hospitalized at this time.

“The victim was on the south side of the road walking westbound on Larsen Lane,” the news release said. “Law enforcement was advised by a witness that the suspect vehicle was a small silver passenger car and left eastbound on Larsen Lane.”

According to the witness, the suspect did not hit the brakes before or after the accident and continued eastbound, turning north on Washington Boulevard.

Vehicle debris left on scene suggests the suspect vehicle was likely a Honda. The suspect vehicle should have front end damage, particularly the passenger side headlight, the news release said.

Anyone who has information about the incident is asked to call Weber County Sheriff’s dispatch at 801-629-8221.
