Update: Eagle Police find hit-and-run driver

We’d like to pass on a major thank you to the public for helping us identify the driver involved in a hit and run crash near the Eagle Road/State Street intersection Sunday night.

A woman driving a white Toyota 4Runner smashed into another car near there Sunday night and then took off. We shared a photo with the public and asked if anyone recognized her. They did and let us know. Eagle police contacted with the female driver Tuesday and she admitted to being involved in the crash.

Deputies cited 38-year-old Michelle Sturdy for inattentive driving and leaving the scene of a property damage crash. Sturdy told deputies she thought she hit a curb or possibly a concrete post.

This was the picture that led Eagle Police to the driver.

The crash happened around 8:30 p.m. Sunday. Sturdy pulled the 4Runner out of a parking lot on to northbound Eagle Road and smacked into the right rear fender of a car going south. That car was damaged on the back end.

She then took off. Deputies later found the 4Runner had damage to the right front.

The driver of the other car was not hurt.

Once again we’d like to thank the public  — specifically readers of social and traditional media — for helping us with this case.
