Lincoln officer’s conversational skills help nab hit-and-run suspect

December 26, 2013

LINCOLN – A keen-eyed member of the Police Department is getting kudos for zeroing in on the alleged hit-and-run motorist who ran down a 23-year-old woman on Front Street last week.

After issuing a public plea for help in the case, Officer Kyle Wingate is credited with singlehandedly nabbing David Vierra of North Providence for the crime on Christmas Day.

Vierra, 50, of North Providence, is now facing one count of leaving the scene of an accident involving personal injury. Capt. Philip Gould said the victim, Melissa Richmond, is still in the hospital recovering from broken bones.
