Bowling Green Police are looking for a suspect in a Tuesday hit-and-run accident that sent one woman to the hospital while she was preparing for the Black Swamp Arts Festival.
Maj. Tony Hetrick of the Bowling Green Police Division reports that at 6:04 p.m. Brenda Baker, Bowling Green, was crossing eastbound at the crosswalk of South Main Street and Clough Street when a dark gray, four-door pickup truck turned southbound onto South Main from Clough.
The vehicle struck Baker, who was in the middle of the crosswalk and had the right of way.
A woman in the truck reportedly stopped and asked if Baker was all right before fleeing the scene of the crash down Washington Street.
Baker sustained non-incapacitating injuries and was taken to Wood County Hospital where she was treated and released.
Baker is the chair of the Visual Arts Committee of the Black Swamp Arts Festival and was downtown to mark the Huntington Bank parking lot for the Wood County Invitational art show, which is part of the festival.
The suspect in the vehicle is described as a middle-aged white female with short blonde hair. She was wearing dark glasses at the time of the accident.
Police are continuing to investigate the incident. Anyone with information is asked to call the Bowling Green Police Division at 419-352-1131.
