The incident occured at 3 p.m., at the intersection of Colgate and Hillcrest. The jogger was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police are now looking for the driver of the tan Chevy extended-cab pickup, who allegedly stopped to check on the victim, but left without leaving any information. The driver is a reportedly a white male, age 25 to 30, and the Chevy has a U-Haul trailer hitch, Texas plates, and a paramedic sticker in the rear window.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call UP Police at (214) 987-5355.

UPDATE TWO: UP Police officers found the truck and the driver last night, according to UP spokesman Steve Mace. Officers spoke with the driver, but have not decided on charges. More still to come.

    That is so scary. I hope they find the driver and the jogger gets well soon

    Am I the only one who thinks it’s ironic/hilarious/tragic that the driver has a paramedic sticker on his truck?

    “and a paramedic sticker in the rear window.”

    Guess that’s why he stopped to check on the victim before driving away.

    As a result of providing as much of a description as could to the community, including the paramedic sticker, a local citizen was able to provide the University Park Police Department with a location of the suspect vehicle which led to officers being able to identify the suspect in this case. Kudos to our community!

    Let’s get some facts straight here:

    Ms. Condon was not jogging. She was simply crossing the street.

    No “life threatening injuries”, but required surgery with multiple broken bones

    To be clear, the driver/ paramedic who stopped by the scene of the accident was in fact the driver of the car who hit Ms. Condon while turning onto Hillcrest.

    The driver left the scene of the accident before the paramedics or police arrived. Why aren’t charges being filed for, at the very least, leaving the scene of an accident? A paramedic would certainly know better. What reason could he have to leave the scene?

    The victim was publicly identified, why hasn’t the driver been publicly identified?
