Hit-and-Run Victim Rehabilitating In Atlanta Facility
HARRISONBURG, VA — A sophomore from James Madison University in Virginia continues to make progress rehabilitating from injuries he suffered in a hit-and-run on August 24, 2018. The Breeze JMU reports that police are honing in on the alleged perpetrator and have asked a court to grant a search warrant for phone records that could link the runaway driver to this horrific pedestrian accident. Investigators have not filed criminal charges as of this point, and the investigation continues.*
Harrisonburg police investigators requested a search warrant from a Rockingham County Circuit Court judge seeking permission to obtain cell phonerecords of the man they suspect ran down a James Madison University student. The affidavit filed in support of the application for a search warrant specifies that a Harrisonburg resident named Mashkhal Ibrahim while driving a black Honda Pilot, struck Jared Antle, from Williamsburg, and fled the scene.
Law enforcement officers say that Mr. Antle was entering a silver SUV when the black Honda Pilot struck him on August 24, 2018. The investigators learned that Nerges Ibrahim, father of the suspect, reported a vehicle matching that description as stolen a mere 18 minutes before the near-fatal hit-and-run. Nerges Ibrahim is the registered owner of a black Honda Pilot.
Numerous witness present at the scene of the pedestrian collision said that the driver who fled was a white male, with neck tattoos, wearing red shorts, and a black tank top shirt. The police said that Ibrahim has clothes consistent in appearance with those described and also sports several neck tattoos. Police seized the clothes and sent the items to the state laboratory. Testing for dust particles emitted from the airbag upon inflation has not been completed.
Mr. Antle continues his rehabilitation in Atlanta. He is lucky to be alive considering the collision was so violent that the airbags of the Honda Pilot inflated. There is no word on his prognosis. The nature of his injuries is not known at this time.
