POLICE INVESTIGATE FATALITY HIT AND RUN ACCIDENT

12/15/2009

            Fayetteville Police Chief Greg Tabor announced today that the department is investigating a fatality hit and run accident.

            On Sunday, December 13th, 2009 at approximately 1:15am Fayetteville Police Officers responded to the 3200 block of Mount Comfort in reference to a report of a subject being run over by a vehicle and lying in the roadway.   During the investigation, information was obtained that led investigators to believe the victim, Shamika REDDEN, age 28, of Fayetteville, was already lying in the roadway before being struck by the vehicle.  The driver and the vehicle were still on scene and they were found not to be at fault, nor were they impaired. 

Witnesses were located and several pieces of evidence were collected that suggests another vehicle had struck the victim prior to the second.   Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to call the Fayetteville Police Department at 479-587-3555.

This investigation is continuing and we will provide additional information, as it is available for release.
