Hit and run accident in Claxton last week injures four

Claxton Police Department has concluded their investigation into a hit and run accident that occurred at approximately 11 p.m. on Monday evening, February 23, at the intersection of N. Broad St. and MLK Dr. 
No suspects were identified. “That might come up later, but right now it hasn’t. Nobody has given a name,” said Police Chief Edward Oglesbee.
An unknown subject was driving a red 2014 Ford Mustang rental car and failed to stop at the stop sign on N. Broad St. The mustang struck the left front side and door of a 1993 gray Buick Century driven by Claxton resident, Reginald Herring, Jr.
After impact, the mustang continued traveling sideways for 49 feet south on N. Broad Street over the curb. It hit a light pole guide cable and the side door step railing of Harper’s Funeral Home before turning over on its top. 
A witness saw three people in dark clothing get out of the mustang and leave the scene running, but could not tell if they were male or female. The rental car was originally leased to an Austell, Ga. resident, but was stolen from a home on Sims St. in Claxton
