Warr Acres PD Search For Car In Connection With Hit-And-Run

Friday, July 9th 2021, 5:18 pm


Warr Acres police released the first image of a vehicle that investigators believe could be connected to a metro hit-and-run. 

The released image comes two days after 35-year-old Dewayne Johnson was hit early Wednesday.

Johnson was on the side of NW 39th Expressway, near N. Grove with lawn care equipment around 5 a.m. when he was hit. 

"We were able to locate a white in color, possibly a 4 door older model car," said Warr Acres PD Deputy Chief John Gray. 

Gray said the car had tinted windows and what looked like darker rims.

Security cameras from a nearby business caught the car as it drove by around the same time Johnson was hit.

"It's going to be a vehicle of interest if you will," said Gray. "Whoever was in the vehicle we would like to talk to them and look at the vehicle."

Johnson is still hospitalized. 

"Any kind of damage that's on the front of the vehicle. Maybe on the hood. If the windshield has been damaged in some way. Fresh damage," said Gray.   

Gray said investigators found evidence from the car responsible at the scene of the crash, and more footage could be released.

"Right now, we're still going over several of the videos that we've seen from several businesses in the area," he said.

Anyone who does recognize that white car should call the Warr Acres Police Department at 405-789-0282, or Crime Stoppers at 405-789-3329.
