The 2005 black Lexus ES 330 sedan seized Tuesday night, and fully believed to be the hit and run vehicle that struck and critically injured two Bird Scooter riders Sunday evening, is being processed for evidence at the MNPD Crime Laboratory pursuant to a search warrant.
The car was found covered by black plastic in the backyard of a home at 901 Freywood Drive in Madison. Central Precinct Officer David Snowden did extensive computer research using partial license tag information to identify the car likely involved. Officers during the night knocked on the door of 901 Freywood Drive. The person who answered the door told officers that the Lexus under the plastic belonged to his son, James Reagon Jr. Reagon Jr., 34, arrived while officers were on the property. After being advised of his rights, Reagon Jr. refused to answer any questions without an attorney.
No charges have been placed at present. The investigation remains active.
