Victim in hit-and-run being sought by Travis County Sheriff's Office

The Travis County Sheriff's office is trying to track down the person who was the victim of a hit-and-run near Pflugerville.  According to TCSO:

Sheriff’s Investigators are looking for a victim of a crash that occurred last week. On Thursday, August 21, 2014, at about 6:40pm, a crash occurred on West Pecan Street and Central Commerce Drive, between Pflugerville and Austin. The victim in this collision was stopped at a traffic light, facing west, on West Pecan and was struck from behind. The suspect vehicle in this case, backed up and fled the scene of the accident traveling west. Two Sheriff’s Deputies witnessed the collision and chased the suspect vehicle, and eventually located the suspect and his passenger after they were involved in a second collision in the City of Austin. The driver was taken into custody and has been charged with Felony, Failure to Stop and Render Aid, for the second collision and Felony Evading. The driver is being held on two $50,000.00 bonds.

 

When the deputies returned to the original crash location, the first victim was no longer present. The Sheriff’s Office is attempting to identify the first victim in this chain of events to document the damage to the vehicle they were operating and if there were any injuries. There are no charges pending against the victim.

 

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Deputy Paul Cossette at the Traffic Investigation Office, 512-854-4321.
