BCSO requests public's help in finding driver who struck pedestrian

ALBUQUERQUE, NM - The Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in tracking down a hit-and-run driver involved in a pedestrian accident.

The BCSO released details of the incident that happened on Sept. 26 at about 10:30 p.m.  Deputies from the Traffic Investigation Unit were called to the area of Interstate 25 between Broadway Boulevard and Rio Bravo Boulevard.

Investigators said a collision involving two vehicles and a pedestrian resulted in a fatality.  After the initial crash, a third vehicle struck the pedestrian and left the scene. It was last seen heading north on I-25 between the Broadway and Rio Bravo Boulevard exit at mile marker 218.

The sheriff's office is now searching for that third vehicle, and described it as resembling a 'U-Haul' or 'Food Truck' style box truck or van.  The vehicle has two axles and a conventional truck front. It seems to have been spray-painted white, possibly to conceal any original markings or emblems. Features may include a side access door into the cargo area.

No license plate information was obtained, and it was not clear how many people were in the vehicle.  Anyone with information on the case was urged to contact the BCSO's Traffic Investigation Unit.  Our Albuquerque car accident lawyer will update this news blog with any additional information as it comes to light.
