Chattooga County, Georgia authorities have now narrowed their search for the type vehicle believed to have been involved in a fatal hit and run occurring on January 4th (2021).
That accident claimed the life of Mark Snay, a resident of Ft Payne, as he was walking down Highway 48 that Sunday night. Evidence at first consisted of a broken off side mirror – which investigators initially thought may have came from a 2007 – 2009 Ford or Lincoln SUV. Additional research has determined that the mirror came from a 2007 – 2010 Lincoln SUV.
The vehicle in question is likely still missing a side mirror and will have body damage to the passenger side. The sheriff’s office is still awaiting trace evidence information from the GBI lab to further narrow down their search.
Anyone with any information regarding that accident, is urged to call Sheriff Mark Schrader at (678) 767-3175 or Investigator Jason Burrage at (706) 506-7249.
