The driver of a green SUV, possibly a Jeep Grand Cherokee according to Yelm police, is believed to be responsible for a hit and run with a gate at the Yelm Middle School construction site. 

According to police records, at about 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 3, officers responded to reports of the incident. The calling party reported a vehicle had struck the entrance gate to the construction site while turning and was leaving. 

Upon arrival, officers noted the gate had been struck open and that one of the chain links appeared to be snapped due to the collision. 

No suspects had been identified at the time of publication.
