Shortly before 7 p.m. Monday Oct. 26, a hit-and-run accident occurred at the intersection of Superstition Boulevard and Ironwood Road in Apache Junction. A juvenile female was struck in the crosswalk by a silver 2006-10 vehicle, possibly a Dodge Charger or a similar looking vehicle, according to a press release.

The Apache Junction Police Department is offering a $3,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction in this hit-and-run investigation.

Investigators believe the driver’s side front headlight could have been damaged during the accident. They think the lens cover and chrome face could have been broken and that the bulb itself may be intact. Investigation indicates that the lens cover is possibly clear in color.

The vehicle was last seen traveling westbound on Superstition Boulevard from Ironwood Drive. The hit-and-run victim is in stable but critical condition, according to the release.

People with information regarding suspect vehicle should e-mail Officer David James at djames@ajcity.net or call him at 480-340-0278.
