Hit and Run Driver Totals Car, Caught on Camera

A late night hit and run leaves one family without a car, and another with thousands of dollars in property damage – and it was all caught on video.

Now police need your helping tracking down the suspect.

The hit and run happened Monday night along Woodmere Road, just south of the the Union Valley Parkway.

Instead of taking his commuter car, a Nissan Sentra, to work Tuesday morning, Robert Coward was forced to take his truck after a hit and run driver totaled his ride. It was just before might when Robert’s next door neighbors security system caught the violent collision on camera.

“I was alseep of course, but I woke up and heard these two banging sounds,” says Coward. “Then I walked out front, still half asleep thinking ‘why is my car not where I park it, and on my neighbors lawn?'”

The truck, which appears to be a dark in color Ford F-150 or 250, did not waste time, and immediately sped off.

Cowards Sentra was totaled in the accident.

His neighbors have estimated they are facing around $2,000 in damages.

The investigation in to this hit and run is being conducted by the California Highway Patrol.

They urge anyone who sees a dark colored Ford F-150 or 250 with front end damage, to report it to the police immediately.
