Hit-and-run driver strikes squad car

By Sara Hooker

The driver of a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run Sunday afternoon returned to the scene and struck a second vehicle -- an Arlington Heights squad car.

Police responded to a call at about 1:30 p.m. at Mitsuwa Marketplace, 100 E. Algonquin Road, of a crash in which the vehicle left the scene of the accident.

While police officers were investigating the crash, the driver who left the scene returned and then crashed into the police car.

"There was very, very minor damage to the squad car," Arlington Heights Police Sgt. Tom Boggs said.

Police do not believe the driver crashed into the squad car intentionally, and the officer was not in the car at the time, Boggs said.

A full report on the incident was not available Sunday night, Boggs said, so details on citations or potential medical situations were not available.
