Pickup driver hit Lawrence County woman, drove away

Pennsylvania State Police are seeking help locating a hit-and-run driver who injured a Lawrence County woman late Friday.

Troopers say that around 11:30 p.m., a dark-colored Dodge pickup drove through the flashing red stop signal at the intersection of State Road 208 and the Grove City Prime Outlet Mall, striking a black Mazda 6 sedan driven by Ronni Hufnagel, 37, of Volant.

Describing her injuries as “moderate,” troopers said she was transported to an emergency room. The driver who hit Hufnagel's car never checked on her welfare and left the scene, they added. Authorities said the truck appeared to suffer front-end damage and is missing at least one headlight. It also likely has paint from Hufnagel's Mazda on it.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the Mercer barracks at 724-662-6162.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
