Hit-and-Run America, Vol. DCCLXXIV

An ongoing collection of unsolved hit-and-run cases, with a focus on car/pedestrian incidents, from across the country since Jan. ‘010. If you know something about any of these incidents, or one that I’ve missed, do the right thing and call the police, even anonymously. After a respite from keeping the list, it restarted in January 2019, highlighting one case a day. If there’s a case you’ve seen that deserves highlighting, drop me a line at hickey@brianphickey.com.

Don’t get behind the wheel,” said family friend Amit Nijhawam. Bhatia was on his nightly walk when the driver of a black BMW slammed into him just before 6:30 p.m. Thursday. Police arrested 25-year old Matthew Chenot for the crime.
