PITTSFIELD -- Police are looking for a Jeep Grand Cherokee in connection with a hit-and-run accident on Sunday afternoon.

The collision with a motorcycle took place around 4:30 p.m. at the corner of Linden and John streets, Sgt. Michael Maddalena said.

The driver of the motorcycle, Brad Humphrey, 58, of Stephentown, N.Y., was struck by the Jeep Grand Cherokee and seriously injured. The driver of the Jeep drove away, Maddalena said. Humphrey has since been released from Berkshire Medical Center.

Witnesses to the crash told The Eagle the Jeep Grand Cherokee was grey.

Police are looking for a Jeep Grand Cherokee that’s missing its rear bumper and a rear taillight, Maddalena said.

"We have the rear bumper and we have the rear taillight from the scene," Maddalena said. "Based on those, it appears to be a Jeep Grand Cherokee from the late ‘90s or early 2000s."

Police ask that anyone with information call them at (413) 448-9700.
