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.
Police said the suspect’s car rear-ended the Honda, then backed up and fled the scene, continuing south on State Road 162 toward Ferdinand.
Dilger was not injured but damage to her Honda was estimated at $5,000.
Police said their investigation into the matter is ongoing.
