Police responded to a report of a vehicle hitting a pedestrian near Trossachs Boulevard Southeast and Southeast Ninth Way at 8:15 a.m. Nov. 27. The pedestrian told police a vehicle struck her as she crossed the street, but she did not sustain any injuries because the vehicle was moving slowly. She said the motorist left the scene after she told him she planned to file a police report. She provided police with the license plate number, and police later contacted the motorist.
