The NOPD is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying and locating the driver of a vehicle involved in a fatal hit-and-run crash that occurred on November 21, 2022, in the 9300 block of South I-10 Service Road.

At approximately 5:52 PM, a female subject was being pushed in a wheelchair by a male victim in the westbound travel lane in the 9300 block of South I-10 Service Road. At the same time, the pictured vehicle – appearing to be a white Honda Accord bearing an unknown license plate – was also traveling in the westbound travel lane. The Accord then struck the victim and male from the rear and fled the scene.  As a result of the collision, the female victim sustained fatal injuries and expired at the scene. The male victim sustained minor injuries and refused medical treatment.

Investigators are working to identify the Accord pictured above and its owner/operator. The wanted vehicle will have damage to the right side and a damaged/ missing sideview mirror. Surveillance video of the vehicle can be viewed in the above player, and images can be found below this text.

Anyone with additional information on this incident, the pictured vehicle and/or the  driver/occupant at the time of this incident is urged to contact NOPD Traffic Fatality Investigator Richard Chambers at 504-658-6207.
