BEL AIR, Md. (WUSA) -- Police are searching for a hit and run car that struck and injured a woman in Harford County on Monday.
The woman, 28, of Harford County, has not been identified because police are still trying to locate and notify her family. She was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center where she is reportedly in stable condition.
The car that hit her has been described as a 'sky blue' passenger car with a broken passenger side mirror.
Police responded at about 7:40 p.m. to a report that a pedestrian had been struck on southbound Rt. 1 (Conowingo Road) just north of the Hickory bypass. Police said a witness said the woman was on or near the roadway, waving her arms, and was hit by a vehicle that left the scene.
According to the witness, the suspect vehicle swerved to the left, apparently attempting to avoid the woman, but hit her with the passenger side mirror. The car pulled to the shoulder of the road about 500 feet from the scene of the crash, but then left the area. A witness called 911 for assistance. The police are continuing to investigate.
Anyone who has any information on the hit and run vehicle and/or driver is urged to call police at 410-879-2101.
