Four years later, Appleton Police still looking for Lawrence University hit-and-run suspect

APPLETON, Wis. - Four years later, Appleton Police are still investigating the hit-and-run that left a Lawrence University student seriously injured.

Now, they're asking once again for the public's help.

Monday, October 9 marked four years since Lawrence student Shannon Grant was hit by a car while crossing College Ave in a crosswalk in front of Lawrence Memorial Chapel.

Grant suffered a broken leg and several other injuries, keeping her out of school for months.

Police are still looking for the person who hit Grant. Despite tips that have been investigated, officers have not been able to find the suspect or the vehicle involved.

Appleton Police again released security footage Monday which shows the suspect and vehicle at a gas station near the crash scene. The suspect pulled into the parking lot to look at damage to her vehicle, police said.

However, the woman did not report the incident or help Grant. You can see the video above.

To improve pedestrian safety, and help with future investigations, Lawrence University and Appleton Police are installing high-definition cameras on two crosswalks on College Ave on campus.

If you have any information, you're asked to call Sgt. Leitzinger at the Appleton Police Department.
