Police seek public's help in hit-and-run case

WICHITA — Police officials are asking for help from the public in identifying a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run accident that seriously injured two men early this morning.

The incident occurred just before 1 a.m. at 14th and Market, said Lt. Joe Schroeder of the accident follow-up unit. Lonnie Andrews, 59, and Stuart Parks, 51, were crossing Market on the north side of the intersection when they were hit by an unknown vehicle, Schroeder said.

The victims were taken to Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis for treatment. Andrews is in critical condition and Parks in fair condition, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Anyone with information about the vehicle and driver involved should call investigators at 316-268-4131, Schroeder said. The vehicle likely has damage to its front end and perhaps its windshield, he said.
