UNION SPRINGS, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Department of Public Safety officials say they’re investigating a hit and run crash that happened after a motorcycle accident in the Union Springs area.

Sgt. Steve Jarrett says 62-year-old John Jenkins was riding a motorcycle and hit a pedestrian Wednesday night. After that crash, Jarrett says a passing vehicle then struck Jenkins and left the scene.
