Polite Driver Leaves Upper Milford Accident Scene

While some may say that one out of two isn't bad, it's likely that a Montgomery County man would have to disagree after traveling through Upper Milford Township on Monday.

What Peter T. Anderson found was a polite driver, who showed concern when he accidentally smashed into the back of Anderson's vehicle, according to . He even apologized. While polite, the other motorist apparently wasn't honest, however, as Anderson soon found out. As the 43-year-old Oaks man checked on the welfare of his young children, he looked up to see the other driver pull away.

No one was hurt -- including Anderson's three boys, ages 2, 5 and 8 -- but Anderson was the victim of a hit-and-run accident, police said.

Anderson was traveling south on Route 100 at 4:44 p.m. when he stopped for a stop sign at Route 29. His vehicle was struck from behind by the other driver, police said. That's when the two pulled to the side, but the man in the second vehicle soon took off.

Police are seeking a 5-foot-5 Hispanic man. Anderson believed that other man drove a blue sport-utility vehicle with a South Carolina license plate, perhaps with the first three letters being WYB.

Police said damage to Anderson's vehicle was minor enough that he could drive it from the scene.
