APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - A $2,500 reward is being offered by Lawrence University in connection with the hit-and-run crash that injured a student back in October.
On October 9, Shannon Grant was struck by a car while crossing College Avenue in a marked, lighted crosswalk. The driver, who was heading west, left the area without stopping to check on Grant's condition. She suffered a broken leg and pelvis, along with road rash.
Investigators think the car involved was a silver or gray Chevrolet Impala with a spoiler on the trunk lid. Based on the wheel rims and markings on the vehicle, it is believed to be from a model year between 2010 and 2013. The vehicle may be damaged on the bumper or hood in the area of the driver's side headlight.
Lawrence University and Appleton police are working on creating a flyer with information on the suspect vehicle and driver. Plans call for the flyer to be distributed to businesses, hospitals and schools in the Fox Valley.
Anyone with information is asked to call Sgt. Leitzinger at (920) 832-5541. Anonymous tips can be made by sending a text message, starting with the keyword APDTIPS and followed by the information, to 274637.
