UPDATE: Vehicle & and Driver Involved In Christmas Eve Hit & Run Have Been Located

On December 25, 2021, with the public's help, the vehicle and driver involved in the hit and run accident were located. The victim remains in critical but stable condition at Via Christi in Wichita.

SPD would like to thank the public for their assistance and would encourage anyone with information to contact the Salina Police Department. The investigation into the incident is ongoing and charges are pending.


On December 24, 2021, at approximately 7:43 pm, Salina Police Department and Salina Fire Department personnel responded to the 500 block of South Ohio Street for a pedestrian that had been struck by a motor vehicle. Upon arrival, the victim, a 49-year-old Salina resident, was found suffering from a severe head injury and a compound fracture to one leg.

The victim was transported to Salina Regional Health Center and then transferred to Via Christi Medical Center in Wichita with life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the motor vehicle did not stop and was last seen headed northbound on Ohio Street. Based on the debris left at the scene, the suspect vehicle is a possible gold or beige 2003-2006 Toyota Camry.  The suspect vehicle should have heavy damage to the driver’s side, including missing the outside rearview mirror, and it is suspected the windshield will have damage as well.
