(Gwinnett County) Gwinnett County Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect involved in a hit-and-run that occurred late last night.
According to a press release from GCPD, shortly before midnight on Monday, May 27, officers assigned to the West Precinct responded to reports of a pedestrian accident on Holcomb Bridge Road near Crooked Creek Road in Peachtree Corners. Officers arrived to find a woman, Maliqua Johnson, 28, of Smyrna, suffering from visible injuries. She was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The preliminary investigation revealed that Johnson was struck by a vehicle as she was crossing the roadway outside of the crosswalk. The vehicle was traveling southbound on Holcomb Bridge Road approaching Crooked Creek Road. After hitting Johnson, the driver left the scene without rendering aid or calling 911.
Based on debris left in the roadway, investigators believe that the vehicle is a newer-model (possibly 2016) red Hyundai passenger car (possibly a Sonata) with damage to the front bumper, hood, windshield, and right side mirror. The investigator assigned to this case is seeking tips to identify the driver of the vehicle.
