Police continue hit-and-run investigation

The University Police Department is continuing to investigate the hit-and-run incident that occurred on the Reynolda Campus Thursday night, Dec. 8.

Police are seeking assistance in identifying the vehicle and driver involved.

At 6:55 p.m., Collen Brehm, an employee of Aramark Campus Dining Services at Wake Forest, was walking across Wake Forest Road, next to Wait Chapel, from Lot P toward Lot Q. A white vehicle struck her, carrying her about 30 feet. Witnesses reported seeing people in the vehicle, which did not stop after striking Brehm.

University Police have received information since the accident and have identified a suspect. At this time, investigators request that those who sent information through the Silent Witness system send additional details to help with the arrest and conviction of the driver.

In North Carolina, witnesses who fail to report such acts can be charged as an accomplice to the crime and can face the same punishment as the driver who left an injured person without medical assistance.

University Police request that they be contacted by anyone with information who may assist in the investigation. To provide information to police, call 911 from a campus phone or 336-758-5911 from a cell phone. Also contact police by using the Silent Witness program on the web at http://www.wfu.edu/police/form-silent-witness.php.
