NewsWorks on the scene: family car struck by hit-and-run driver on Chelten Avenue

    Authorities are looking for the man who fled the scene of a car crash this afternoon on Chelten Avenue near Greene Street.

    A family of four sustained what are believed to be minor injuries when their car was struck. The offending driver left, dropping a Chicago Bears hat on the street. His dark blue BMW, seen above, appears to be badly damaged.

    “A nasty hit-and-run at Chelten and Greene in Germantown,” reads a tweet from the scene. “Guy hit car with man, woman, two kids. Took off running ‘in no pain,’ says witness.”


    NewsWorks’ Brian Hickey happened to be on the scene, and will continue to bring us more details as the story develops.
