BAINBRIDGE, Ga. (WTXL) - Bainbridge officers are asking for help finding the suspects who injured pedestrians with fireworks on July 4th.

Bainbridge Public Safety says there were two separate incidents in which pedestrians were injured by fireworks.

The first incident occurred around 9:30 p.m. on July 4th near Dairy Queen at the intersection of Shotwell and River Streets.

They said a gray Dodge pickup truck shot a firework from the truck window directly at a woman walking along the street, causing injuries.

Officers say the truck was driven by a white male, and had multiple passengers.

The second incident occurred at the Boat Basin during the fireworks show around 10 p.m.

A woman and her 10-year-old daughter were directly hit by a firework shot by a group of young black males.

Both received injuries from the exploding firework.

Anyone who has information or may know who is responsible for either incident (the drive-by Dodge truck or the group at the Boat Basin) is asked to call BPS at 229-248-2038 and ask for Major James Dollar.
