Family Searches for Hit and Run Killer of 18-Year-Old (Photos of Suspect Vehicle)
Eureka resident Marsha Allen is hoping someone in Humboldt County may have more information on the hit and run crash that left her beloved grandson, Hunter Allen dead back in August.
On Wednesday, August 1, 2018, at approximately 3:12 a.m., CHP officers were dispatched to a report of a body in the roadway on Highway 101 northbound, just south of Humboldt Hill Road. Upon arrival, officers found 18-year-old Hunter Allen deceased on the roadway.
While investigating, officers had reason to believe a red 1986 Chevrolet Blazer could have been involved in a crash with Allen.
…The vehicle has been found and is impounded at this time….The CHP is asking for the public’s help in identifying the driver or current…owner of the Blazer. The license plate number is California/lSBA584.
“I am hoping that someone out there will come forward with information on who was driving this red Chevy blazer on the early morning of Wednesday, August 1,” stated Marsha Allen, the grandmother of Hunter Allen. “We just need that one break to help us identify the driver. It is possible that the driver of this vehicle had been staying near the Pine Hill/Humboldt Hill area or this vehicle might have been parked in that area.”
Allen is so committed to finding the driver of the Chevy Blazer that she hired a local sign company, renting an electronic sign board that shows photos of the possibly involved vehicle. “The specific sticker on the driver’s side rear of the vehicle reads, ‘My Other Car is Out of Gas’ will stand out to someone who remembers seeing it in their neighborhood,” stated Allen. “I want to bring closure for our family on this tragic incident. If you have any information, please contact our local CHP.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the local CHP office [at] 707-822-5981.
Note: The electronic bill board sign is located on the east side of the 4100 block of Broadway-for southbound traffic. Note: “The vehicle hasn’t been legally registered since 2014. It has sold many times since then.” (People don’t understand or realize that just because you have a license plate that does not mean that the last person to own it– is the suspect.)
