San Angelo Police continue their search for a hit and run driver who dragged a woman over 500 feet before fleeing the scene of a crash on Knickerbocker Road Tuesday, June 3, 2014.

 

Initial reports indicated the color of the suspect's pickup truck was white or cream-colored, but police have since learned the vehicle may be tan-colored, possibly extended cab or 4-door, towing a rust-colored trailer with a rust-colored tractor.  The truck was last seen traveling southwest towards Lake Nasworthy after the incident.   

 

Police have recently received information that the suspect driver is a white male, possibly between the ages of 30-50, with curly, strawberry-blonde hair cut to the middle of his neck.  He was also described as wearing a dark blue-colored baseball style cap. 

 

The victim is currently under medical observation in Dallas, Texas.  Her injuries are severe. 

 

Police have followed up on several tips; however, none have panned out and the driver has not been identified.  It is unknown if the truck's driver is aware of the incident and police are urging the driver to contact the department immediately to give a statement.
