Jackson County Deputies Search for Hit and Run Suspect
Jackson County deputies need help locating a car that left a 42-year-old man injured in a ditch.
Deputies found Donald Goff of Hattiesburg surrounded by a group of people on Cook Road in St. Martin around 9 o’clock Friday night.
Goff says he was walking on the east side of the road when a vehicle hit him and drove off. Officials believe the vehicle responsible is missing a passenger side mirror. Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell said, “The man told us that he thought it was either gold or a late model car. The mirror was knocked off so we believe that the mirror belonged to the suspect vehicle. So really right now we don’t have a lot of information to go on, but we are actively pursuing it.”
Goff was taken to Gulfport Memorial Hospital with undetermined injuries.
Anyone with any information on the hit and run is asked to call the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department.
