Amity Hit-Run Driver Takes Out Brick Pillars

AMITY PA – A debris field (above) consisting of broken bricks, pieces of mortar, electrical conduit, and car parts is what Amity Township Police arrived to find in responding to a report of a hit-and-run crash at a Limekiln Road home, the department reported Thursday (Aug. 2, 2018) at its website.

The home’s owner reported a vehicle struck two large brick pillars, one of which contained a mailbox, at the end of his driveway. Officers collected several car parts at the scene, including a Toyota emblem, insulation to a front bumper, a gray or silver plastic piece, and possibly a bushing to a radiator, the report stated.

Video surveillance footage being collected from the home itself, and from other residences and businesses in the area, indicate the crash occurred July 26 (2018; Thursday) just before midnight, when the home was unoccupied. Police speculate the vehicle, likely an older model gray- or silver-colored Toyota Corolla, “should have front end damage and possibly (is) missing the front bumper.”

It was last seen traveling south on Limekiln towards U.S. Route 422 by Island Pizza. Police are looking for its driver. Anyone with information is asked to call Senior Patrol Officer Brian Devlin at the department, 610-689-6002.
