Springfield police seeking public’s help with hit and run suspect

Springfield Police Department are asking for the public’s help with a hit and run that left a pedestrian with potentially life-threatening injuries early Sunday, department spokesman Ryan Walsh wrote in a tweet.

At approximately 4:45 am, police responded to the scene on Maple Street, he wrote. The driver fled the scene by the time authorities arrived, and the pedestrian was transported to Baystate Medical Center in serious condition, Walsh wrote. No other information about the victim was given.

The vehicle was described by police as a “black or dark late model Nissan Maxima or Altima” with “a cracked/spider-web windshield and possible dents in the hood.”


The driver is believed to have left Maple Street heading west on State Street, and then possibly went on the highway, Walsh wrote, though he didn’t elaborate further.

Police are asking the public to call 413-787-6333 with any information or Text-A-Tip.

No additional information was immediately available.
