Decatur, GA — A hit-and-run driver struck a pedestrian in a crosswalk on Monday afternoon and police need the public’s help finding the suspect.

Sgt. John Bender said police were dispatched to the intersection of Commerce Drive in Swanton Way at 3:53 p.m. on Feb. 22. They were responding to a call about a crash involving a pedestrian.

Bender said the “investigation revealed a pedestrian was crossing Commerce Drive in the designated crosswalk at the intersection. A white SUV driven by a female was turning southbound onto Commerce Drive from Swanton Way. The SUV struck the pedestrian in the crosswalk then fled the scene southbound on Commerce Drive. ”

The pedestrian was transported to a hospital for treatment, but their condition is unknown.
