Fayetteville Police report that an active duty soldier was a victim of a hit and run accident while he rode his motorcycle on February 19, 2013. Officers responded to the 8400 block of Cliffdale Road and found the victim next to his totaled motorcycle with injuries. The victim was taken to Womack Hospital.
Police have not released any information because they believe this motorcycle hit and run is related to a shooting that involved another motorcyclist at the 4200 block of Bragg Boulevard. Police believe they are related because the shooting happened just prior to the hit and run, and the victim of the hit and run accident told officers that a car was following him before it hit him and drove away.
