Sheriff’s office looking for driver in hit and run injury accident

The Clay County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a woman suspected to be the driver of a vehicle that fled the scene of an injury accident early December 15 in the 3000 mile of Highway 18.

According to the sheriff’s office, the hit and run accident occurred at 4:35 a.m.

Wesley Lloyd, 30, of Spencer, was driving a 2003 Chevrolet Blazer east on Highway 18 and pulling a recreational trailer when a woman driving a dark-colored passenger car collided with the trailer and his vehicle, according to the sheriff’s office.

The woman fled the scene before emergency services arrived.

Lloyd was treated by the Spencer Hospital Ambulance Service and then transported to Spencer Hospital for the injuries he sustained.

Damages to Lloyd’s vehicle were estimated to be worth $8,000 or a total loss.

The sheriff’s office is still investigating the accident and would like information regarding the other driver.

The other driver is described by authorities as a white female in her early- to mid-20s with shoulder-length blonde hair. At the time of the accident, she was wearing a dark coat with fur around the hood, blue jeans and Ugg boots.

Authorities believe the vehicle to be a Chevrolet Impala or other dark-colored passenger car. The vehicle would have extensive damage to the right-front and passenger side.

The sheriff’s office is asking anyone with potentially helpful information regarding the driver’s identity to call 712-262-3221.
