The Milford Police Department has been investigating a hit and run crash involving a pedestrian that occurred on Thursday, January 28th at approximately 6:28pm. The incident occurred on Duck Lake Road between Commerce and Cooley Lake Roads. The Department issued an alert on Facebook, advising that it was looking for a Jeep Wrangler, black in color, missing a large portion of the driver side fender flare.
