Police are investigating a hit-and-run incident that reportedly took place in a parking lot Monday afternoon, Jan. 10.

Belfast Police Chief Jeff Trafton said Waldo County Regional Communications Center received a call around 1:30 p.m. from a man who said he had been hit by a vehicle while walking in a crosswalk in the parking lot at Hannaford.

The male caller later said the vehicle “nudged him,” Trafton said. Complete information about the incident was not immediately available Monday afternoon, but Trafton said no ambulance was called to the scene because the man did not have any serious injuries.

Trafton said police were looking for a van that was believed to be involved in the incident.

Tuesday, Jan. 11, Detective Sgt. Bryan Cunningham said police were looking for a gray van, and the victim said he was pretty sure the vehicle’s license plate began with the numbers 7 and 3. The victim also said it was a commercial license plate, and believed the vehicle to be diesel-powered. Police were looking through a list of vehicles in the area that matched those criteria, Cunningham said.

Though the victim was not physically injured, Cunningham said the man was upset about the fact that the vehicle didn’t stop after having made contact with him. The victim was apparently also in the company of a pregnant woman, and Cunningham said the victim was worried about her safety, as well.
