Eyewitnesses Watch SUV Hit And Run, Police Now Hunting

For most of us, it seems unimaginable that anyone could hit someone with their vehicle and then drive away without another thought. On the evening of February 10th in a neighborhood in Phoenix, that is exactly what happened. A hit-and-run crash involving an SUV and a pedestrian has left one man dead.

According to an article appearing on the AZFamily website, what would turn out to be a fatal crash happened on at approximately 8:00 p.m. Sunday night on Seventh Avenue and Baseline Road.

Police are still currently searching for the driver who struck and killed John Juarez, 65, as he was crossing the street Baseline Road.

Eyewitnesses say that Juarez was struck by a red SUV. The driver did not stop at the scene of the crash to check on Juarez’ status but instead sped away.

Juarez was transported to an area hospital. He was pronounced dead as a result of the injuries he sustained in the crash.

Police are now searching for the driver of the vehicle involved in the fatal crash. The SUV is likely to have front end damage to the front end, including the grill, headlights, and hood of the vehicle.

Phoenix Police are asking the public for their help. If anyone has any information regarding the crash, they are encouraged to get into contact with Phoenix Police. Tips can be left at Phoenix PD’s Silent Witness webpage or by calling 480-WITNESS.
