Postal worker victim of hit-and-run; Police continue searching for driver



BUTLER, Pa. - Butler City police are asking for the public’s help identifying the driver wanted in connection with a hit-and-run accident Saturday morning.

Authorities said a postal worker was hit at the intersection of Spang and Walker avenues while delivering mail just before 10 a.m. Saturday.

“The police report indicated that he was hit and thrown up on the hood. (The driver) had to have known (he hit someone),” Butler police Lt. Dave Delcamo said.

According to police, the vehicle involved is a vibrant, bright blue hatchback car (police gave us the picture to the left and said the vehicle looks similar). There was a child seat in the rear seat facing forward and the vehicle should have some damage to the hood, police said.

Witnesses told detectives that the driver was a white male in his mid-20s to 30s wearing thick black-framed glasses.

“That’s crazy. Who doesn’t stop?” said Brittney Wilco, who lives near the scene of the accident.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact police at 724-287-7743.
