The Front Royal Police Department is seeking witnesses to an accident that occurred on June 16th at approximately 12:21 P.M. at the intersection of North Shenandoah Avenue and West 14th Street. A green Saturn SL2 was stopped in the south bound lane to proceed straight when a white pickup truck failed to stop and struck the Saturn in the rear. The driver of the pickup turned right and pulled over at the Front Royal Motel while the driver of the Saturn pulled into the Blue Ridge Motel parking lot. The driver of the pickup, which is described as an older white male, approached the driver of the Saturn and stated that he would call police. He then returned to his vehicle and fled the scene. The driver of the Saturn sustained non-life threatening injuries and was transported to Warren Memorial Hospital.
