Hit & Run


On December 7th 2012 at approx 6:00 PM, Lansdale Police responded to the area of N. Broad street and Second Street for a report of a Hit & Run pedestrian accident.  Investigation revealed that a 40 yo male pedestrian from Franklin Street in Lansdale was crossing N. Broad Street in an easterly direction at Second Street.  As the male reached the center lane dividing lines he was struck by a vehicle traveling south on Broad Street.  Witnesses stated the striking vehicle was a red Volvo (NFI) which failed to stop and continued south on Broad Street before possibly turning left (eastbound) onto E. Main Street.  Upon being struck by the front of the Volvo, the pedestrian was forced up onto the hood and possibly the front windshield.  The victim was taken by ambulance to Abington Hospital Lansdale where he was treated and released for injuries to his ankle.

Lansdale Police are asking anyone with further information about this incident and/or a red Volvo with recent damage to the hood and/or front windshield to contact Lansdale Police at (215) 368-1801 or anonymously at
