Offense: Hit and Run Investigation
Case Number: 1409300024
Corpus Christi Police Officers were dispatched to the 7100 block of Southhaven Dr. for a hit and run crash with an AEP Power pole. Officers found a wooden electrical pole on the north side of the road had been broken off a few feet above the ground. The remaining pole was standing upright in the street being held up by some wires. Several other wires had snapped and were on the sidewalk. A witness told officers she saw a white truck with a short bed in the roadway shortly after she heard the crash, and then saw the truck leaving the scene on Rodd Field Road. Officers determined that a vehicle traveling east on Southhaven Dr. jumped the north curb, and struck the wooden electrical pole and then fled the scene. Damage to the pole was estimated to be about $3,500. Corpus Christi Police Hit and Run Investigators will be looking into this case to see if they can identify a vehicle and driver involved.
