GPD looking for hit-and-run driver

Grapevine Police are seeking help from the public to identify a woman involved in a hit and run that injured two children.

On Friday, November 27, 2020 at approximately 3:25 p.m., three 14-year-old boys were crossing the intersection of Meadowlark Drive and Glade Road when two of them were struck by a car. The victims were in the crosswalk. One victim was thrown from his bicycle and suffered minor injuries. Another victim on a skateboard suffered more serious injuries, and had to be transported to the hospital. The third child was able to jump out of the way. 

According to witnesses, the driver swerved from one lane to the other to pass a car, when she struck the children with her front bumper. One person was able to capture cell phone video of the suspect’s car leaving the scene, but the license plate is not visible.

Several adult witnesses describe the driver as a woman in her 20’s or 30’s with dark hair, and appears to be of Asian or Middle Eastern descent. She was driving a silver, 4-door Toyota Camry.

Anyone who is able to identify the suspect is urged to call detectives during regular business hours at: 817.410.3200, or email tips to: cidmail@grapevinetexas.gov.  You can also call in tips after hours to our non-emergency dispatch line at: 817.410.8127.
