Police investigate Sand Hill hit-and-run

A dark blue 2002 GMC truck careened off several traffic signal poles and then ran into a tree in the area of Sand Hill Road and Branner Avenue on May 6, according to Menlo Park police.

Officers responding to a call that a traffic signal was down at Sand Hill Road's intersection with Branner Avenue around 9:24 p.m. found witnesses to the incident, but not the driver.

Those who saw the collision described the driver as a white man in his mid 20s, about 5 feet 9 inches tall, and weighing 170 pounds. He wore a white T-shirt and jeans, they said. He reportedly stopped to gather a few items from the truck before walking away from the scene.

On Wednesday morning, May 7, police spokeswoman Nicole Acker said, another call came in, this one at 5:45 a.m. from an injured man at the intersection of Sand Hill Road and Oak Avenue. He was taken to Stanford Hospital for treatment. But, she said, it's not clear yet whether he was involved in the Tuesday night collision.

Police ask anyone with information to call 330-6300.
