The Jasonville Police Department is seeking the public’s help following an accident involving a pedestrian Monday night.

According to JPD’s Facebook page, the vehicle vs. pedestrian accident happened in the area of Main and Horace Streets between 9:10 and 9:20 p.m.

The vehicle, which fled the scene of the incident, is believed to be a Ford Ranger -- is possibly an early 1980s Ford F150, grey in color.

“Chief Jim Gadberry urges the driver or anyone with information to contact us immediately,” JPD wrote in a Facebook post. “This is a terrible accident and it’s understandable that the driver is scared. But we will identify the driver and the longer this is drawn out the more difficult it will be to continue to call it an accident.”

Anyone with information is encouraged to call 911 or 800-385-1140. Anonymous tips can be made to Crime Stoppers at 812-847-5463.
