Reward offered for tip on car that hit officer

        FAIRFIELD — The Fairfield Fraternal Order of Police and local businesses are offering a $2,750 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the driver who struck an officer Saturday.

        Officer Craig Singleton was directing traffic around an accident at 2:44 a.m. on Dixie Highway near Lighthouse Drive when he was struck by a southbound vehicle. He was directing traffic because a police cruiser, driven by Officer Tom Wolf, was struck during a traffic stop.

        Officers Singleton and Wolf were treated and re leased from Mercy Fairfield Hospital. Officer Singleton has not returned to work, and must undergo more tests. Officer Wolf is expected to return to work this week.

        Witnesses said a small red car, occupied by two males, struck Officer Singleton and continued south on Dixie Highway.

        Lt. Ken Colburn said the red car might have damage to the front, hood and windshield. The FOP and its auxiliary, along with local businesses, are offering the reward. Anyone with information about the hit-and-run should call Fairfield Police at 639-7820.
