UPDATED: Driver involved in fatal hit and run in Moyock located

UPDATE: The North Carolina Highway Patrol reported late Monday morning that the driver has come forward.

The Currituck County Sheriff’s Office is seeking community assistance in “locating a suspect vehicle from a hit and run early this [Sunday] morning that resulted in fatalities.”

According to CCSO, on August 30 at approximately 1:51 a.m., a vehicle traveling northbound in the 600 block of Caratoke Hwy. struck a pedestrian on a bike. After the collision, the vehicle pulled into Moyock Commons and then fled the area northbound toward Virginia on Caratoke Hwy. around two minutes later.

CCSO has confirmed that the incident resulted in two fatalities and that two vehicles were involved.

Based on surveillance footage, the vehicle that fled appears to be a 1992-96 Toyota Camry, silver or goldish in color. The vehicle is reported to have sustained damage to the driver side headlight, driver side hood and appeared to crack the driver side windshield. The driver side mirror popped out, but the housing remained on the vehicle.

CCSO states the vehicle “is possibly registered in Virginia based on a possible front plate. The driver appeared to be a white male, however not confirmed.”

Those with any information are asked to contact the NC Highway Patrol at 252-792-4101 or the Currituck County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency number at 252-232-2216 to assist the investigation.
