Police in Bainbridge, GA, Searching for Hit-and-Run Driver


January 13, 2019

BAINBRIDGE, GA. – An online news story at wtxl.com reports that police in Bainbridge, Georgia, are searching for a driver involved in a hit-and-run collision. The driver has not yet been identified, and few details about the collision have been released.*

The Bainbridge Police Department says an unidentified woman caused a collision on Showell Street in the parking lot of the Bainbridge Walgreens. The woman then left the scene. 

Police did not describe the nature of the collision, so it is not clear whether the woman hit a parked vehicle, collided with a car driving through the parking lot, or struck a person or object. 

Officers said the woman was driving a white SUV at the time but did not provide a make or model of the vehicle. Officers also did not indicate whether anyone was injured in the collision. 

It appears the Walgreens has provided surveillance footage of the woman coming into the store and leaving the store. The woman was wearing a blue-green colored Hurley T-shirt, peach-colored shorts, and sandals. She has short or medium-length brown hair that was pulled into a bun with a white hair band at the time of the incident. 

Footage shows the woman was talking on a cell phone while she was inside the store, but police did not say whether they believed she was distracted by the phone leading up to the crash. 

Anyone with information about the woman, the vehicle, or the collision is encouraged to contact the Bainbridge Police Department at (229) 248-2038.
