A $500 reward is being offered to the person who leads Jeff Elliott to the vehicle that collided with his truck Saturday night.
The wreck happened at the intersection of Crescent-Anthony roads and Gold Knob Road about 10 p.m.
Elliott said the crash happened when a hunter green Chevrolet truck, believed to be a 2003-2005 model, ran the intersection’s stop sign and struck Elliott’s 2003 Ford F-350.
Elliott, his fiance and his 6-year-old son were in the truck at the time. The truck was disabled after the front axle and drive shaft broke.
Elliott said he saw the truck pull out into his path at the last second.
“They just rolled up to the stop sign and almost paused for a second and then hit us,” Elliott said. “They sat there for a second and stomped on it and drove off.”
Elliott was traveling southbound at the time. He said the truck sped down Crescent Road toward Faith Road after the collision.
After the collision, Elliott said he found pieces of the Chevy’s grill and headlights at the scene.
North Carolina State Highway Patrol Trooper Morgan responded to the crash.
Morgan said he expects the Chevy to have significant damage to the front-end.
“It took a pretty good impact,” he said.
Elliott said the wreck caused about $9,500 in damage to his truck.
He had to pay a $500 deductible for the hit-and-run.
“I’m out $500 regardless,” he said. “If I found them, it’s just a bonus.”
Contact Jeff Elliott at 704-322-5739.
