SOUTH FORSYTH — Authorities are seeking information on a hit-and-run suspect who caused a vehicle to overturn several times on Peachtree Parkway last week after running a red light.

The suspect, whose name and description remain unknown, was believed to have been driving a gray or silver Ford F-150 super-crew cab.

The truck, which has a sliding bed cover and no step rails, is a model from between 1996 and 2004, possibly closer to the latter, according to Pete Sabella, a spokesman for the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.

Video surveillance footage from a gas station showed the vehicle passing through the intersection at Sharon Road and the gas station to flee south on Peachtree Parkway (Hwy. 141).

According to information reported to the sheriff’s office, the truck ran the red light at Sharon Road and Peachtree Parkway and was struck by a blue Chevrolet S-10 that overturned several times on about 9 p.m. Aug. 24

The truck is believed to have heavy driver-side damage and likely has deployed side airbags, the agency said.

Anyone who saw the crash, was at the gas station at that time or has information on the suspect or vehicle is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (770) 781-2222 or send a private message to its Facebook page.
