Brownwood police are seeking the public’s help in identifying the driver of a van involved in a hit-and-run accident that injured a pedestrian on Nov. 1.

    Anyone who knows the person in the video is asked to contact detective Brian Rice at 325-646-2525.
    According to a report by officer Ray Slayton:
    Slayton was dispatched the morning of Nov. 1 to the 500 block of East Commerce, where a van struck a woman as she walked across the street. The woman told Slayton she watched as a van left the parking lot of the 7-Eleven store and turned left. The van drove directly toward her and she could not get out of the way.
    The woman said the van struck her with its front ride side and her head head the van’s hood.  The woman told Lifeguard personnel she was a little sore but did not believe she needed medical attention. The woman’s husband later drove her to Brownwood Regional Medical Center because she was experiencing more pain, and she was transferred to Abilene Regional Medical Center.
    Surveillance video from he 7-Eleven showed the full sized van parking outside the store at 7:38 a.m. The driver, who appeared to be a Hispanic male in his early o mid 50s, work a dark colored hooded jacket. The man bought a lottery ticket, left the store and got back in the van.
    Slayton believes the van in the video is a GMC Safari. The woman who was struck said the van is green with gold around the bottom.
