Father of Hit-And-Run Victim Issues Video Statement
04/18/2017

(KNZA)--The father of a 21-year-old Horton woman who suffered critical injuries in a hit and run last week has released a video statement pleading for information about the driver responsible for putting his daughter, Amber, in the hospital. “I got the phone call early Friday morning that my daughter had been in an accident,” Darryl Wilhelm says in the video posted by the Riley County Police Department. “Heard she was going to be in Topeka and drove here to find her laying in bed with tubes hooked up everywhere.”

Amber Wilhelm was struck shortly before 2:00 Friday morning while crossing the intersection of 12th and Bluemont, in Manhattan, while on foot. The pickup truck that hit her fled the scene.

Wilhelm remains in critical condition at Topeka’s Stormont-Vail Hospital, and her father wants answers. “[We're] just looking to see if anybody has any information leading up to an arrest, just to help find the person so we can pick up the pieces and move on.”

Investigators are still in the process of interviewing witnesses and collecting video surveillance of the area from several businesses as well as traffic control cameras.

Witnesses told police a light colored 2011 to 2016 Chevy or GMC extended cab pickup truck struck Wilhelm.

Anyone with information regarding the case is urged to call the RCPD at 785-537-2112 or use the Manhattan/Riley County Crimestoppers tip line at 785-539-7777.
