Tips Sought In FDL County Hit And Run

The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office is hoping the public will help them determine who was driving an SUV that struck and injured a 36-year-old Oakfield woman who was crossing the road in front of Schmitty’s Oar House. Sheriff’s Captain Ryan Waldschmidt says the public has been responding to their plea for more information about Saturday night’s accident. He says they got several tips and they have several leads. He says they are trying to determine the make and the model of the SUV from pieces of the headlight assembly left behind at the scene. He says they are also looking at video surveillance from Schmitty’s and other systems in the area hoping to get a better look at the vehicle. He says the woman was treated and released from St. Agnes Hospital. He says witnesses told investigators she received more than a glancing blow from the SUV. He says when they saw her after she was struck she was flying through the air and she landed near the curb on Winnebago Drive. The SUV was light-colored, possibly gold or sliver-colored. Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at (920) 929-3390 or can call the tip line anonymously at (920) 906-4777.
