Driver sought for two wrecks

Seymour police continue to look for a motorist involved in two separate hit-and-run incidents Sunday evening.

The most serious of the two incidents involved a report that a house had been struck in the 300 block of East Street near downtown. That incident was reported at 5:30 p.m.

“They heard a crash and went outside and saw a man in a black car backing up and yelled at him to stop, but he drove away,” Cpl. Jason Alberring said.

No one at the home was injured, but police are not sure of any injuries to the motorist.

Witnesses told police the driver was a white male in his 20 to 30s with tattoos on his neck. They also said he was driving a black car with a loud muffler and “heavy front-end damage.”

While police were investigating that incident, dispatchers received a report that a vehicle hit a truck parked in a lot at On the Rox, 214 S. Broadway St.

Alberring said police believe that incident occurred before the wreck that damaged the northwest corner of the home on East Street, which is just a block west of the bar on Broadway Street.

There also was damage inside the home, and there were tire tracks leading up to the house, Alberring said.
