Greene county ambulance involved in hit-and-run; LPD seeking information

Sunday, August 12, 2018

The Linton Police Department is investigating a hit-and-run incident involving an ambulance.

According to Linton Police Chief Troy Jerrell, an ambulance was struck around 4:30 p.m. yesterday while responding to an emergency, and the driver fled the scene. The vehicle was last spotted heading east on SR 54 from the Linton CVS around 4:45 p.m. that day.

Thankfully, Jerrell said there were no injuries and little to no damage to the ambulance.

The vehicle is described as a silver four-door Hyundai with an entirely missing front bumper cover and a missing driver-side headlight.

According to additional information supplied by Shelburn Police Department on social media, confirmed by Jerrell, the driver was an “average build white female wearing purple pants, a pink or red shirt and... a baseball cap on,” SPD wrote. “She was also carrying a medium-to-large sized brown or black dog.”

SPD asked anyone with information to assist the investigation by calling LPD at 812-847-4411 or the Greene County Sheriff Department at 812-384-4411. LPD is investigating the incident.

“We have video, so we will probably be able to identify the driver soon, hopefully,” said Jerrell.
