Police seek suspect in strange hit-and-run
Say woman walked up to car she hit, looked at victims and fled
The crash occurred at 8:45 p.m. last Thursday on the Spillway Bridge on Airline Highway. According to the three victims, a vehicle traveling behind them in the eastbound lane rammed into the back of their car.
The victims followed the hit-and-run driver, who police have identified as Kimberly Albrecht, for about a half mile before the offending SUV stopped. According to the witnesses, Albrecht got out of the vehicle, walked to the victims’ passenger side window and looked at the three women inside. Sheriff Greg Champagne said Albrecht then ran back to her vehicle and sped off on Airline Highway.
The witnesses were able to get a license plate number which led authorities to Albrecht, whose address is unknown at the time.
According to Capt. Pat Yoes, spokesman with the Sheriff’s Office, Albrecht has hired an attorney who told authorities that she would turn herself in.
However, Yoes said Wednesday that she had failed to do so.Anyone having any information on the whereabouts of Albrecht is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (985) 783-6807.The three victims were all transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
