Waycross police are asking for the public’s help in tracking down a hit-and-run driver who struck a stop sign and a fire hydrant on Euclid Avenue at its intersection with City Boulevard, knocking down the fire hydrant and flooding the street, which had to be closed for about two hours, said Capt. Tommy Cox.
The incident occurred at 6:34 p.m. Tuesday as the car, known only to be green, was eastbound on Euclid Avenue. The driver attempted to turn right onto City Boulevard and took down the hydrant as it moved forward, Cox said.
“We had to shut down the street for about two hours after it was flooded,” said Cox.
“The only information we have is that the car was green and it probably has moderate to heavy damage on the passenger side,” Cox said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Waycross police at 287-2921 or the automated tip line (to remain anonymous) at 287-2924.
