The Memphis Police Department has released a surveillance photo of the car involved in the deadly hit-and-run accident at Overton Square last Wednesday. The car is believed to be a silver Ford Mustang with a dark line or decal across the rear bumper. It has damage to the front, windshield and roof. If you know anything about the whereabouts of this car and its driver, please call 901-545-COPS. Many of my friends knew the victim and want to see justice done.
