A Clovis Unified principal is asking for the public’s help in identifying a hit-and-run driver that injured a student Thursday morning.
“I wanted to inform you of an accident that occurred this morning (8:15 a.m.) involving one of our students. While in the crosswalk of the intersection of Fort Washington and Champlain Avenues a fourth grader was struck by a vehicle that then left the scene,” said Valley Oak Elementary School principal Julie Duwe.
The student wasn’t seriously injured, she said, but now police are searching for a red car, possibly a Toyota Corolla or Celica.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Fresno Police Department at 559-621-7000.
“I’m grateful for the staff, medical professionals and community members who worked this morning to support our student during this frightening experience,” Duwe said.
