The police have a license plate — and a photo of the suspect and his car. But, apparently, neither has led Suffolk County police detectives to the man wanted in a hit-and-run accident last month in Huntington.
So police are asking the public’s help locating the man. They’re asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 800-220-8477. All calls will remain confidential and callers are eligible for a cash reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to an arrest in the case.
Police said the crash occurred on Pulaski Road at about 7:30 p.m. June 28.
It was then, police said, that the suspect, driving a silver 2003 Hyundai Elantra with the Virginia license plate VNF-1536, collided with a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado. Police said the suspect exited the vehicle, but then he fled when he learned the other driver was notifying police.
The Silverado driver got a photo of the man and the car — and the license plate.
Police said officers went to a home associated with the plate, but found no one there.
