Shively Police release description of vehicle involved in fatal hit-and-run crash
The unique characteristics of the vehicle that hit and killed 34-year-old Rodrick Grinstead.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Shively Police are looking for a driver who hit and killed a man on Dixie Highway last week.
Assistant Police Chief Josh Myers said they believe a woman was driving the car that hit 34-year-old Rodrick Grinstead at Dixie and Garrs Lane on Oct. 26.
Surveillance video from nearby businesses helped investigators pinpoint a late model Toyota Corolla or Nissan Sentra. The car was burgundy but the driver's side door was gray. The vehicle will likely have extensive front end damage.
Investigators believe the car had been stopped at the light on southbound on Dixie Highway at Crums Lane. It was behind a black car that swerved to miss the man crossing the roadway. But the burgundy car hit Grinstead and then got on to the Watterson Expressway. Police aren't sure which direction.
Shively Police believe the public can help identify the vehicle because of its unique description.
Anyone with information is asked to call Shively Police at 502-448-6181 or call the anonymous tip line at 502-903-2SPD.
