FERDINAND — The Ferdinand Police Department now knows the identity of the hit-and-run driver who left the scene of a Friday night accident.
Police did not name the man but officers said he turned himself in to officers. Police will now seek to charge him with a count of leaving the scene of a property damage accident.
The 9:30 p.m. accident involved a car driven by the suspect and a 2012 Honda Odyssey minivan driven by Shauna M. Dilger, 36, of 8950 E. 2000N. It occurred on State Road 162 north of Industrial Park Road.
