HAMPDEN, Maine — Local police are searching for a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run accident Thursday morning.
The crash occurred in the parking lot of the U.S. Postal facility on Penobscot Meadow Drive around 7:30 a.m., according to Hampden police Officer Ben Eyles.
The officer said the vehicle, a Subaru driven by a woman, pulled out of a parking spot, struck the rear of the other vehicle and took off.
Shortly after, the woman returned to the parking lot, stepped out, picked up a piece of the vehicle and took off again, according to Eyles. He suspects it may be the offending vehicle’s front license plate.
The driver is described as a thin female who was wearing a light colored hat, a winter coat and turquoise sweatpants, Eyles said. Her vehicle has front-end damage, particularly on the front passenger-side corner.
Anyone who sees the vehicle should contact Hampden police at 862-4000 and ask for Eyles.
