      Police seek driver involved in Gladstone hit-and-run

      Gladstone Public Safety officers are looking for more information about a hit-and-run accident Sunday night.

      Around 5:40 p.m., officers responded to the South 9th Street alley between Delta Avenue and Minnesota Avenue behind Main Street Pizza.

      A 78-year-old Gladstone woman was traveling south on 9th Street when a tan or pewter colored 4-door Chevy Blazer, traveling eastbound in the alley between Delta and Minnesota Avenues, crashed into her right front side.

      After impact, the driver of the Blazer backed up and continued eastbound in the alley toward South 8th Street. The driver never stopped to identify himself or render any aid.

      Officers are asking for the public's help in locating this vehicle and its driver. The Blazer likely has front end damage. The driver was said to have a mustache and was wearing a leather-style biker-type hat. Anyone with information is asked to call (906) 428-3131.

      The 78-year-old woman did not seek any medical treatment. Officers transported her to her home.
