Imagine driving through the area doing your Saturday night thing when someone runs into your vehicle, backs up, and runs into you again, pushing your vehicle across an intersection.
That's the nightmare that Lori McHale says happened to her and her husband Ryan last weekend.
Lori says Ryan was driving when the hit and run happened at the intersection of Tilton and Wrangelboro Roads in Hamilton Township. Lori wrote the following on Facebook:
"A Ford F150 gray/tan with black racing stripes down middle and black flames on sides (see pictures) hit us, then kept pushing us, then backed us and hit us again, backed up and took off. We followed him while I was on phone with Mays landing dispatcher. He knew we were following him, he turned into development on Alexander Drive. Then he turned down a street with cul-de-sac sac."
During the ordeal, Lori, in the passenger seat took photos and video.
Police responded, but Lori said they had to give up a pursuit in the interest of safety.
Lori says the police have a few leads but apparently nothing more yet. She says she's worried about the next time that this driver pulls something like this: "We thankfully are OK, but the way we acted and was swerving and driving thru a development at high speed and evading police. He's gonna do it again and next time someone wont be as lucky."
If you can help with identification of the truck and/or the driver, you're urged to contact Hamilton Township Police. Lori says Officer Jim Jacobi is the officer assigned to the case.
LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America
Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
