Whitehall police are seeking assistance in identifying a driver who fled from the scene of a fatal accident Feb. 21 at East Main Street and Shady Lane Road.

A pedestrian identified by Whitehall police as 57-year-old Phillippe Schlagetter died at the scene after a vehicle struck him at 10:14 p.m. Feb. 21.

The vehicle that struck Schlagetter was traveling westbound on East Main Street and turning south onto Shady Lane when the accident occurred, police said.

Schlagetter was in the crosswalk on Shady Lane.

The driver fled south on Shady Lane without stopping, police said.

Anyone who might have been in the area at the time or have information about the driver is asked to call Whitehall police at 614-237-6333.

Detectives are continuing to review video from local businesses in the area and are asking the driver “to do the right thing now and come forward.”

“It would be in the interest of the individual responsible for this to come forward and give their side of this instance because sooner or later we are going to find you,” Whitehall Deputy Chief Dan Kelso said.
