UNITY TOWNSHIP, Pa. — State police arrested a man accused of hitting a woman on the crosswalk of the Walmart in Unity Township Wednesday morning, then taking off.

“There was a customer that was leaving Walmart and pushing a shopping cart and while she’s pushing the cart, a pickup truck backed into her,” Trooper Steve Limani said.

Luckily, that woman did not have serious injuries, but police said the driver of this pickup truck — described as a Chevy Colorado Redline Edition — stopped, then kept driving.

Police said they do not think it was intentional, but after hitting her, he went shopping at Lowe’s, where he is seen on surveillance.

“We have reason to believe that he hit this person just by watching the video surveillance footage at the Walmart parking area,” Limani said.

Investigators said he had an obligation to stop and help and provide information, but because he did not, he is now looking at the potential for criminal charges.

“It’s the actual fleeing after striking something that’s causing the problem in this particular case,” Limani explained.

If you have any tips or if you know who that man is, call state police in Greensburg at 724-832-3288.
