The Missoula Police Department is asking for the public’s help in tracking down a vehicle involved in a local hit-and-run incident.

“A vehicle hit some of the protective beams on the Milwaukee trail, where it crosses Russell Street,” said Missoula Police Detective Sgt. Greg Amundson. “There’s quite a bit of damage in the neighborhood at $1,800-$1,900 damage to the barriers and then knocked out a couple of them. They’re substantial posts, they’re big wooden posts, like 8 inches by 8 inches, so the car is going to have some pretty significant damage.”

That damage is just about the only clue investigators have. Even the color of the car is unknown because very little evidence was found.

“We didn’t find a lot at the scene, but there was a piece of black bumper with a silver strip on it,” Amundson said. “That was about the only thing that was left behind and there weren’t any identifiable parts on that though, unfortunately.”

The incident was discovered early last Wednesday and is assumed to have occurred during the night on Tuesday, January 7.
