The Port Washington Police Department continues to search for the driver in a hit-and-run incident where a pedestrian was struck the morning of Oct. 17.

The pedestrian, a student at Port Washington High School, was crossing the street near the intersection of Holden and Walters when they were clipped by a vehicle. The pedestrian briefly blacked out from the collision but ultimately only suffered minor injuries, according to Capt. Michael Davel of the PWPD. The only information regarding the vehicle was that it was black and possible a crossover-type vehicle.

According to Davel, the incident does not appear to be part of any trend in traffic and that pedestrian hit-and-runs are uncommon in the area. However, he did recommend that any students or faculty walking near the school in the morning should remain alert and vigilant, as traffic tends to be busier at that time of the day.

The police have not released the name of the pedestrian.

An official report was expected to be released this week.

Anyone who has any information on this incident should contact the Port Washington Police Department to incident report #16-12976. If an anonymous tip is preferred, the department offers this through the Facebook page by clicking on "Submit A Tip."
