Police seek driver who left scene of rear-ender accident
SUNBURY - State troopers are seeking information on the driver of a vehicle that was rear-ended by another vehicle reportedly following too closely on Thursday on Mile Hill Road.
The driver of the unknown vehicle came to a complete stop in the southbound lane about 6:45 p.m. in Upper Augusta Township, according to state police at Stonington. The vehicle was struck from behind by a 2005 Kia Rio driven by 23-year-old Damir Budic, of Sunbury.
After impact, troopers say Budic drove into an embankment on the left side of the roadway, causing his vehicle to spin before coming to rest.
Troopers say the unknown driver turned into a parking lot, turned the vehicle around and drove north on Mile Hill Road without stopping or exchanging required information.
Neither Budic nor a passenger, 20-year-old Lindsey N. Stroup, of Sunbury, was injured, troopers say, and both were wearing seat belts.
Budic was cited for following too closely.
Troopers ask that anyone with information on the accident call 286-5601.
