DEPARTMENT CASE NUMBER: 17C62015
WICHITA POLICE DEPARTMENT: DETECTIVE MOCK

About 2:45 a.m. Friday, Sept. 8th, a 22 year old male pedestrian was walking home from a nightclub near Kellogg and Webb. His friends left the club after him, and spotted him in a road construction area on Kellogg. When they stopped to get him, he was standing in the roadway somewhat near his friend’s car. When they were attempting to get Anderson to get into their car, a large truck driving west struck him. The truck’s driver accelerated away from the scene. Anderson received serious injury but is expected to recover.

Witnesses described the suspect vehicle as a large, possibly heavy duty, dark- colored truck with a blue unknown tag. The impact was most likely on the driver’s side front bumper and possibly side fender and door. Evidence at the scene indicates it was between a 2011-‘14 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 or 3500 heavy duty, and that some of the trim pieces were red. Witnesses also said it sounded like a diesel engine.
