Pennsylvania State Police have questioned a man in connection with Saturday's hit-and-run accident that led to a lengthy power outage at a city shopping center, according to Hagerstown Police Department Sgt. David Long.
Police believe a Pennsylvania motorist, whose name was not released, likely was responsible for the power outage at the Centre at Hagerstown Saturday afternoon. A police spokesman said Saturday that investigators believe a red Ford Ranger pickup truck ran into a power interface located just beyond a parking space, causing the outage.
"Whoever hit it knew he hit it," Long said.
Long said troopers from the Chambersburg Pennsylvania State Police barrack questioned the unidentified motorist Sunday. The motorist denied any involvement in the hit-and-run, according to Long.
