Princeton Resident Seeks Identity of Driver in Hit and Run

A Princeton resident who was the victim of a hit-and-run accident on Thursday night, Feb. 4, at 6:07 p.m. on Rosedale Road is asking for the public’s help identifying the driver.

The woman was driving a brown 2011 Honda Odyssey mini-van on Rosedale Road and her daughter was a passenger. About 50 yards before the Great Road/Elm Road traffic light, a black Ford, 4-door pick-up truck heading in the opposite direction on Rosedale Road swerved into her lane and struck the driver’s side of the mini-van.

A woman driving behind the mini-van saw the incident and stopped to provide assistance. The driver of the truck pulled over for a moment but then took off.

We weren’t able to get a license plate number,” said the mini-van driver. “I wasn’t able to get out of my car and couldn’t see anything because of the airbag.”

The driver called 9-1-1- and filed a report with the Princeton Police Department. The police verified the truck was a Ford. An officer found part of the mirror at the scene.

There were no major injuries. The van was scratched and dented from the front wheel well to the back of the car.

Anyone with information about the accident should call the police department at 921-2100.
