Police are seeking information that could lead to identifying the driver in a hit-and-run incident in Cross Plains.

The Ripley County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of an accident resulting in property damage at the intersection of State Road 129 and Country Road 900 on Sunday afternoon.

Police believe a female driver of a light tan older model Jeep Cherokee with tinted windows attempted to turn onto County Road 900 South when the vehicle left the roadway.

The vehicle crashed into a 2006 Pontiac GT which was parked in the driveway.

“Heavy damage to the parked vehicle occurred at that time,” said Ripley County Sheriff Tom Grills.

The driver of the Cherokee continued to flee the scene but not before striking a stop sign with the rear of the vehicle. Police say the driver went north on State Road 129 following the incident.

Police believe there was a male passenger in the vehicle as well.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Ripley County Sheriff’s Office at 812-689-5558, or any law enforcement agency. Tips can be left anonymously.
