Evesham police looking for hit-and-run victim

Police in southern New Jersey have a mystery on their hands. Evesham police believe an 81-year-old motorist struck a pedestrian. But officers have not found the victim.

An officer stopped the Cherry Hill motorist on East Main Street on Tuesday night. The officer noticed damage to the passenger side of the vehicle that was consistent with striking a person.

Police say the driver recalled striking something, but he was unsure what it was or where it happened.

Tests showed hairs found on the vehicle are consistent with coming from a human. Evesham police say the collision could have occurred within an hour radius of Cherry Hill Mall.
