WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police now have an idea of the car they’re looking for after a hit and run vehicle crash that put a college student in the hospital over the weekend. Wilmington Police say they’ve found a mirror from the car at the scene.
Daniel Khan, a 21-year-old student at UNC Pembroke, was crossing the 400 block of South College Road around 1 a.m. Saturday when he was hit.
Investigators say the mirror belongs to a light gold 1999 to 2003 Mitsubishi Galant. They say the car should have damage to driver’s side, including but not limited to the driver’s side mirror.
