Chandler, AZ – UPDATE: Father & Son Killed in Hit-and-Run Wreck at Alma School Rd
Chandler, AZ (October 23, 2019) – Chandler police are still looking for a hit-and-run driver in a dark-colored SUV following a fatal accident on Monday.
According to police from the Chandler Police Department, a 50-year-old man from Bangladesh, Mohammad Misbah Uddin, and his 12-year-old son were killed after being struck by an SUV believed to be a 2012-2016 Dodge Durango early Monday evening.
The two victims were crossing Alma School Road at Erie Street when the northbound-traveling SUV hit them. They were walking to a local mosque for evening prayer at the time of the crash. After the accident, the SUV fled the scene, continuing north on Alma School Road. Authorities said that the vehicle could have radiator damage and most likely sustained heavy front-end damage in the accident.
Our condolences go out to the family of Mohammad Misbah Uddin and his son at this time.
