River Road Hit and Run

July 16, 2008

COLUMBUS, Ga (WXTX) - Columbus police are asking for your help finding a deadly hit and run driver.

In February of 2008, skeletal remains were found in a drainage ditch in the 8800 block of River Road. Those remains have now been identified as those of 53-year-old Ronald Johnson who was reported missing in October of 2007. An autopsy determined Johnson apparently died in a hit and run accident. Car parts found nearby tend to confirm that assumption. They were from a 2007 or 2008 Dodge, possible a Charger or a Magnum.

If you have any information about this crime, give Crime Stoppers a call. You could be eligible for a $1000 reward and you don't have to leave your name.

The number is 706-653-3188.
