— Authorities are looking for a driver who fled the scene after running over a woman in a crosswalk in Little Rock's Hillcrest neighborhood Sunday morning.

Police say it happened about 9:30 a.m. as 61-year-old Lois Sandusky was in the crosswalk on Beechwood Street at Kavanaugh Boulevard.

According to an accident report, a white Ford 150 pickup turned right onto Beechwood, striking Sandusky and running over her with the front left tire. Police say the driver stopped then before looking in the mirror and pulling forward, running over Sandusky a second time with the rear left tire.

A passerby reportedly then intervened, asking the driver "what he was doing."

"[The driver] then sped away from the scene south on Beechwood and disappeared into the neighborhood," police wrote in the report.

Family members said Monday that Sandusky remains in stable condition in the St. Vincent Infirmary Medical Center's intensive care unit.

The hit-and-run driver has not been located. Police describe him as a white man about 50 to 55 years old with white clean-cut hair and a full facial beard with possible glasses.

The truck is said to be an extended cab model with military-themed plates possibly reading "USAAEF."

I hope they find the truck was stolen. I would hate to think one of our military or retired military men was responsible.

Where are all the "ban hoodies" comments NOW, when someone NOT wearing a hoodie (and also white) committed a crime in LR?

that would look like:


Come on LRPD... Let's get this guy! And remember, friends of the criminal, you can be charged as an accessory if you have information about this crime and fail to report it.
If the lady dies in the hospital, you may be an accessory to manslaughter.

Ban hoodies? No, that won't stop robberies or murders.
If someone is wearing a hoodie or any other garb to obviously conceal their identity there must be something up. I have never gone into a convenience store, business, or bank and felt like I need to conceal my identity. Of course, I'm not planning a crime. With all the recent murders and robberies, I cannot imagine how employees must feel if being approached by someone trying to conceal their face. I don't think a hoodie conceals a face.

you know at the intersection, I have walked across their with my grandson, in the approved/marked walk ways and cars still almost hit us. Slow and people and watch what your are doing, you know that is a extremely busy intersection! If you are the person that hit that person, you will be caught/prosecuted you committed a FELONY!

Poor woman is run over and people have to indulge their racial and political prejudices?
