Lawrence University leaders offer reward in hit and run

It's been six weeks since a hit and run accident injured a Lawrence University student.
APPLETON, Wis. (WFRV) - It's been six weeks since a hit and run accident injured a Lawrence University student. Now school officials are offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of the unknown driver.       

Lawrence University has been working closely with Appleton police since the October 9th incident. That's when Shannon Grant was hit by a car when she was using a crosswalk on College Avenue. She broke her leg and pelvis and had to leave school while she recovers.

Thursday, school leaders announced a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the driver.

Police said tips continue to come in but the suspect still has not been identified. They're looking for a female driving a newer model Chevy Impala.

"We definitely want our students to feel comfortable here and know that even though accidents happen, we take very seriously taking responsibility," said Nancy Truesdell, Dean of Students.

"We do believe at this point that someone has probably seen that and probably knows who this person is and we hope that at this point they decide to step up," added Sgt. Dave Lund.

Police and university leaders are also planning to put up posters of pictures from surveillance video at school, hospitals and businesses around the Fox Cities.
