Pittsburgh Police Search for Driver Involved in Hit and Run with Pedestrian

Date: August 26, 2020
Incident Type: Pedestrian Hit and Run
Location: Zone 4

Pittsburgh Police detectives from Zone 4 are searching for the driver of a vehicle involved in a hit and run incident with a pedestrian who is pregnant.

On August 20 at approximately 4:20 p.m., a female walking southbound on the sidewalk on East End Avenue was waiting to cross the street inside a crosswalk at Tuscarora Street when she observed a Ford Mustang that appeared to be slowing down at the stop sign, allowing her to cross.

The female says she stepped into the crosswalk, but instead of stopping, the vehicle struck her with enough force to push her up on the hood of the car. When it stopped she fell off and struck her head on the pavement.

She told police a male driver exited briefly and yelled at her. When she told him she was going to call police, the male got back into the vehicle and turned left on to East End Avenue toward Brashear Street at a high rate of speed.

The vehicle is described by two witnesses as a Gray Ford Mustang with black racing stripes, like the one pictured below.

The driver is described as between 20 to 30 years of age. A female with long hair was in the vehicle’s passenger seat.

Anyone with information is asked to call Zone 4 detectives at (412) 422-6520.
