EARLIER POST | Do you recognize this man? Puyallup police say he may have some information on a hit-and-run accident last Thursday that left a teen with serious injuries.

The 16-year-old girl was struck around 7:30 p.m. while using a crosswalk in the 600 block of West Stewart Avenue, police said. Detectives think the vehicle that hit the teen may have been an SUV, possibly a Chevrolet Suburban or Tahoe.

Hit  Run Male 6 (2)

Puyallup police are trying to identify this man in connection with a hit-and-run accident last week.

Surveillance video from the nearby Golden Rule Grocery captured an image of what may have been the vehicle leaving the scene, according to police, who released the image to the media.

On Saturday, the man pictured here went to the store and asked about their video-surveillance system, police said today. He is not considered a suspect at this time and there is no probable cause for his arrest, but police say he may have information related to the incident. The man was driving a Dodge Dynasty.

If you recognize the man, call the department’s tipline at 253-770-3343.
