Police Seek Help Locating Hit and Run Suspect

Polk County Police are still seeking help in locating a suspect in a hit-and-run that occurred last week that injured a woman.

Detective Caleb Bowman said at midweek that police had yet to locate Ronald F. Forsyth, 42, who is being sought after he fled from officers during a traffic stop and leaving behind the vehicle he is alleged to have struck and injured a woman on February 16.

Forsyth was last seen around Johnson Lake Road and Judkin Mill Road in the Cedartown area, when he was able to elude officers during a search when he got away on foot from officers pursuing him for the hit-and-run.

He was last seen in a camouflage shirt and a black undershirt.

Forsyth is reported to have fled from the Valero gas station in Cedartown at 1408 S. Main St. after he struck a woman on Feb. 16. Police did not identify in their report on the incident, but did say she suffered injuries serious enough to require hospitalization.

The vehicle listed above is a 2006 Red Infiniti M35 (Georgia Tag #RSW9118).

Those with information about Forsyth’s whereabouts are encouraged to contact the Polk County Police at 770-748-7331, or directly contact Bowman at his office at 678-246-5107.
