JASPER — The Jasper Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating the driver of a vehicle that struck a Martin County man’s truck late this morning.
John M. Schnarr, 29, of Loogootee was going to a doctor’s appointment and had parked his 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche at the Medical Arts Building, 721 W. 13th St., when the incident occurred at about 11:20 a.m., according to authorities.
Upon returning to his truck, police said, Schnarr noticed a paint transfer and damage to his passenger-side rear bumper.
Police said teal paint was left on Schnarr’s tan and silver truck. Schnarr told police he thought another vehicle had backed into his truck.
Damage to the Avalanche was estimated at $750.
The type of vehicle that struck Schnarr’s truck and left the scene was not immediately known.
Anyone with information on the hit-and-run is asked to call Jasper police at 482-2255 or the department’s anonymous tip line: 481-COPS (2677).
