Police Investigate Hit and Run of Business on Brownsville Road

Date: January 21, 2020
Incident Type: Hit and Run
Location: Zone 3

Pittsburgh Police officers from Zone 3 responded to reports of a vehicle that drove into a Uni-Mart store on the 1900 block of Brownsville Road at 3:28 a.m.

Officers spoke with the store clerk and a witness who described the vehicle crashing into the glass front doors of the store and reversing before fleeing the scene. No one was hurt.

Police have reviewed camera footage from inside and outside of the store and describe a black Mercedes 4-sedan. Only the front of the vehicle was caught on camera so no license plate information was immediately available.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to call Zone 3 at (412) 488-8326.
