Bristol Township police seek public’s help in fatal hit and run


The Bristol Township Police Department is asking the public for help in connection with a fatal hit and run, which occurred Sunday in Levittown.

According to police, a pedestrian was struck at approximately 4:08 p.m. Feb. 5, in the parking lot of a McDonald’s restaurant located at 7700 Bristol Pike. The truck that struck the pedestrian “fled the scene,” police said. The pedestrian was transported by a Bucks County Rescue Squad ambulance to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries, police said.

The striking vehicle was a gray Chevrolet Silverado four-door pickup truck, approximately a 2013 model, with a 4x4 sticker on both sides of the bed, black rims, and a front vanity license plate, police said. The truck may be missing an oval-shaped black plastic trim piece that may cover a fog lamp opening.

Anyone who has information about this incident is asked to contact Detective Patrick Kitchenman of the Bristol Township Police Department at 267-812-3056 or by email at
