Hot Springs Police Officer Nuñez investigated a hit & run injury, rear-end crash that damaged a house Thursday Night on Alcorn Street just east of Cherokee Street.
Witnesses at the scene stated that a black car was parked on the street at the curb, just like normal. The neighbor arrived home (gold Tahoe) slowed and had just begun to turn into their driveway. A vehicle came from behind the Tahoe and rear ended it. The force of the collision sent the Tahoe out of control. It struck the black, parked car, ran over a chainlink fence, struck a small tree/bush and looked like it may have stopped short of striking the house. However, small damage was observed on that corner of the house.
The suspect vehicle that struck the rear of the Tahoe allegedly fled the scene and was not located while I was on scene.
Hot Springs Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly and assisted at least 1 person from exiting the wreckage. They also assisted with patient care, blocked traffic, provided flood lighting at the scene and otherwise assisted as needed.
LifeNet dispatched at least 1 Ambulance Crew and the EMS Supervisor. At least 1 person was transported by ambulance to the hospital.
Holcomb’s Transport & Recovery took charge of and removed at least 1 of the vehicles from the scene.
