It was learned that a resident and his son were walking along the road when a car struck the father and then fled the scene. The victim was transported to Western Maryland Health System and ultimately to WVU Hospital in Morgantown, WV with life-threatening injuries. 

A check of the area for the suspect vehicle yielded no results. 

A press release requesting the help of the community yielded several leads that were investigated.

Driving Vehicle in Excess of Reasonable Speed

During the investigation another contact that deputies had developed attempted to impede the investigation with false information.
