The victim of a weekend hit-and-run crash in Dawson County is now recovering with non-life-threatening injuries, according to Courtney Floyd with Georgia State Patrol.

The driver of the sedan car allegedly involved has been identified as a 17-year-old female with no injuries, stated a preliminary GSP narrative. 

On June 3 at about 11:56 p.m., troopers were dispatched to a vehicle crash involving a pedestrian at the intersection of Dawson Forest and Blacks Mill Valley roads in Dawson County, according to the preliminary narrative. 

“A witness advised that he observed what appeared to be two males walking partially in the roadway while traveling west on Dawson Forest Road,” the preliminary narrative stated. “The witness advised that he observed a white sedan traveling westbound on Dawson Forest Road toward the pedestrians and heard a collision. Both the vehicle and pedestrian then left the scene of the collision.”

The pedestrian was a Hispanic male and was taken to Forsyth County’s Northside Hospital Sunday morning. He was later taken to Northside Gwinnett with non-life-threatening injuries. 

The Dawson County Sheriff’s Office posted on social media Sunday asking for the public’s help in finding the sedan and its driver.

Only a few hours after the DCSO post, the driver was located. 

“We appreciate the hard work of our deputies, GSP, Dawson County Fire and EMS and all the tips from the community,” stated the updated DCSO post. 

GSP officials are continuing their investigation into the crash. Due to the ongoing investigation, the pedestrian and driver’s names will be given out at a later date, the GSP narrative stated. 

This story will be updated once more information becomes available.
