Authorities Identify Vehicle Type Involved In Cary Hit And Run

Posted October 23, 2003

— Cary police said they have zeroed in on the make and model of the pickup truck involved in a hit-and-run accident that injured a high school student Monday morning.

Investigators said

a newer-model green Ford F-150 pickup

struck 18-year-old Kristina Grahn as she was crossing the intersection of Walnut and Maynard streets near Cary High School.

Grahn remains hospitalized in fair condition.

Evidence left at the scene indicates the green Ford F-150 pick-up truck is between a 1999 and 2003 year model with a silver honeycomb grill. The truck should have at least the upper right section of the grill broken out as well as other minor to moderate front-end damage.

"He definitely knew he hit someone. After he struck the young lady, he went up onto the curb. Witnesses say he stopped for a second and left," said Sgt. Joe Clifton of the Cary Police Department.

The driver was described as an older white man.

Cary police continue to encourage citizens and local body shops to be on the lookout for the truck.

"Right now we need that person to get a conscience and come forward or someone that knows this person or sees the vehicle to contact us," Clifton said.
