[ARCHIVED] Press Release: Acton Police Release Surveillance Video In Relation to Hit-and-Run Pedestrian Crash

ACTON — Police Chief Richard Burrows and the Acton Police Department are asking the public for assistance as they work to identify a vehicle that struck and seriously injured a 13-year-old pedestrian in a crosswalk on Great Road. As part of their ongoing investigation, Acton Police obtained video surveillance from a local business and wish to share that footage with the public, in the hope that someone might recognize the vehicle involved. 

Police are interested in any information the public has on a sedan seen passing through the area, and a dark-colored sport utility vehicle that passed through a short time earlier.
