Hit & Run - maybe not
February 9, 2010
In response to yesterday's FOIA Request, the McHenry County Sheriff's Department has provided the following information about a blue paint transfer on white Chevrolet SUV (Tahoe?) with license S 56-5.
"The paint transfer you are referring to was caused from an incident in Chicago. On December 14, 2009, employees of the McHenry County Sheriff's Department attended a funeral of a Chicago Police Officer who had also been previously employed by the McHenry County Sheriff's Department. The paint transfer occurred when a Chicago Police squad brushed the left rear bumper of the SUV. The incident was assessed by both drivers and witnesses. Due to the minimal amount of damage, the circumstances involved, the incident did not meet the requirements for a crash report under state law. It was determined that a report was neither required nor necessary. All communication regarding this incident was done verbally.
"The McHenry County Sheriff's Department has no knowledge or record of a minor traffic accident on January 22, 2010 at or near Cardinal Fitness, 11621 Catalpa Lane, Woodstock. If a victim or witness to a traffic crash has any information involving any crash, the McHenry County Sheriff's Department Department encourages them to report this information to the proper police authority."
Many thanks to the Department's FOIA Officer for the prompt and complete response.
