The Vancouver Police Department has found the vehicle and is questioning its 15 year-old driver in yesterday’s hit and run assault of a seven year-old boy.
Here’s the official word:
Vancouver Police Traffic Investigators located a vehicle they believe was involved in yesterday’s hit and run assault of 7 year old Trevor Wagner. Detectives are interviewing a 15 year old male who lives within 2 miles of the crime scene and who is believed to have been the driver. The vehicle, a Nissan Frontier, was located at the residence of the suspect and has damage that corresponds with evidence located at the scene.
Investigators developed a list of registered vehicles that matched the mirror that was found at the scene and began contacting the registered owners at home. The vehicle was located during one of those contacts.
Vancouver Police would like to thank the members of the media for their assistance in getting information out about this case and to members of the community for their vigilance in keeping a lookout for possible vehicles.
Contact Info: Kim Kapp, Vancouver Police Department Public Information Coordinator, (360) 696-8265.
That’s some swift work by the Vancouver P.D.
