Police announced Thursday that they have a black 1999 Audi A4 sedan that is missing its front windshield.

The Audi is believed to be the car that struck 52-year-old Lisa Thomas in the 400 block of East Cherry Street on October 21. Thomas died Friday from a traumatic brain injury at Penn State Hershey Medical Center.

“I definitely hope that they confess to what happened and just try to tell the truth. That’s what should have happened in the first place. We definitely want answers and someone to come forward that they did it,” said Michael Petrino, a neighbor.

Another neighbor is relieved to hear police believe they have the hit-and-run vehicle in custody.

“It’s a good thing. They’re obviously doing what they need to do. It’s obviously upset the community very much. We have a lot of other stuff going on down the road, but it’s a good thing,” said Benjamin Shaffer, a neighbor.

Police did not announce an arrest or identify a suspect.

They are asking anyone with information on the windshield’s location, or any other information about the incident, to call them at 717-838-8188.
