On Tuesday, at approximately 3:20 p.m., officers from the Grand Forks Police Officers were dispatched to the parking lot of Hugo’s on 1750 32nd Avenue South for a report of pedestrian struck by a vehicle with the striking vehicle leaving the scene.
According to witnesses, the 87-year-old victim was walking through the parking lot when a white SUV similar to a Honda CRV was backing out of a parking spot and made contact with the victim causing the victim to fall to the ground and receive minor injury. The striking vehicle then left the scene. It appears the driver of the SUV did not see or notice they struck the victim. The driver was described as an older white female.
