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.
