Ames Police Believe They Found Hit-and-Run Car; Waiting on Arrest
Police said Tuesday that they must determine who was driving.
Ames Police believe they have found the car involved in a April 1, hit-and-run at Campustown, but they haven't yet determined who was driving, said Ames Police CMDR. Jim Robinson.
Robinson said police found the car believed to be involved in a hit-and-run with a 22-year-old skateboarder last week and would release more information once charges are filed.
An article in the Ames Tribune reported that vehicle was a silver 2001 Lincoln LS. Police found the car after a tip came into Story County Crime Stoppers, the article stated.
Tyler Clark was struck by the car while traveling near Hayward Avenue and Chamberlain Street. He said he was on his way to the Iowa State University library. Clark was taken to Mary Greeley Medical Center for his injuries and has since been released from the hospital and told a reporter from KTIV that he has four broken ribs and injuries along his left side. He expected a complete recovery in three months.
