The Bristol Township Police Department and the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office are asking for the public’s help in locating a vehicle involved in a fatal crash in the parking lot of a McDonald’s located at 7700 Bristol Pike in Levittown.

At a news conference Monday, District Attorney Matt Weintraub also urged the driver who fled the scene following Sunday’s deadly crash to turn himself in.

Jason Smith, 47, of Levittown, was struck by a Chevrolet pickup truck in the parking lot of the McDonald’s at 4:08 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 5, 2023. The driver of the pickup truck then exited the parking lot and drove down Route 13 toward Tullytown.

Smith was transported by an ambulance from the Bucks County Rescue Squad to Jefferson Torresdale Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Before being struck, Smith and the driver of the truck were involved in some type of brief altercation in the parking lot, Weintraub said.

The pickup truck is a gray Chevrolet, possibly a 2013 Silverado with a front vanity plate. The truck may be missing an oval shaped black plastic trim piece, described as an end cap for the driver side running board.

Anyone with information is asked to contact, Bristol Township Detective Patrick Kitchenman of The Bristol Township Police Department at 267-812-3056 or by email at pkitchenman160@bristolpd.org or Bucks County Detectives at 215-348-6354 or www.BucksDA.org.
