Sewickley police are looking for the driver of a silver Nissan Quest van who was involved in a hit-and-run on Dec. 16 on Ohio River Boulevard.

Police said at approximately 8:30 a.m., the driver of the Nissan van rear-ended a black Honda Accord that was turning left onto Boundary Street in Sewickley from Ohio River Boulevard.

The impact forced the Honda into oncoming traffic and the driver suffered a neck injury, police said.

The driver of the van left the scene and abandoned the vehicle near the Coast Guard station in Glen Osborne before fleeing on foot.

The van's owners reported the vehicle stolen about 20 minutes later.

Police are asking any witnesses to call them at 412-741-2015.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
