The Sedalia Police Department is requesting the public's assistance in searching for a driver who fled a crash scene Thursday afternoon on Broadway Blvd.

Just after 5:00 Thursday afternoon, Sedalia Police responded to Broadway Blvd and Prospect Ave in reference to a hit and run accident. Upon arrival contact was made with the victim who stated she was westbound on Broadway Blvd when a dark-colored Cadillac turned off of northbound Prospect attempting to go west on Broadway Blvd.

A press release from the Sedalia Police Dept. says the Cadillac struck the front driver side of the victim’s vehicle, causing significant damage. This impact forced her off the roadway where she came to rest in the grass. The suspect vehicle fled the scene of the accident. The victim sustained injuries in this crash and was taken to Bothwell Hospital for treatment.

According to the press release, several witnesses explained that the Cadillac fled the scene westbound on Broadway Blvd turning onto northbound Quincy Ave. It was last seen westbound on 3rd Street from Quincy Ave.

The Sedalia Police Traffic Unit is seeking the public’s assistance in locating the suspect vehicle. Parts from it were recovered on scene and it is believed to be a 1994-1996 Cadillac Deville. Witnesses described it as being dark in color, likely blue or green, with a lighter-colored top. This Cadillac should have damage to the front passenger side. The driver was described as a white female, possibly in her 30’s, with dark hair.
