Police continue investigation into man hit by a car in Arnold
Police are investigating what began as a hit-and-run of an Arnold man who was rollerblading Wednesday afternoon near the intersection of Horne Boulevard and 14th Street, according to police.
Joshua Townsend, 27, was found lying on Horne Boulevard just before 6 p.m. after being hit by a car, according to Arnold police Chief Eric Doutt.
He was taken to UPMC Presbyterian, where his condition was unknown Thursday.
After the incident, an Arnold woman stopped by the Arnold police station to turn herself in, according to Doutt. She told police she was driving the vehicle that hit Townsend, Doutt said.
The incident started when Townsend and two females were rollerblading.
Officer Wesley Biricocchi said Townsend was along the side of the road in the 500 block of 14th Street and reportedly was hit by a dark-colored vehicle.
Townsend was adjusting his rollerblades when a vehicle turned onto Horne from 14th Street and hit Townsend, according to Doutt.
The investigation is still pending, he said. No charges have been filed.
