A Wilmington woman involved in a serious hit-and-run crash died from her injuries, according to investigators.

Police say two female UPS workers, Maria Eldreth, 52, of Wilmington and Judith Johnson, 67, of Newark, got off a bus at 7:30 a.m. last Tuesday when the accident occurred. The women were heading to work at the UPS warehouse on Lake Drive in the Pencader Corporate Center in Glasgow. Suddenly, investigators say, they were struck from behind by a vehicle traveling east on Corporate Boulevard. After the crash, police say the vehicle did not stop and continued eastbound on Corporate.

While Johnson was taken to the hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries, Eldreth was taken in critical condition to the Christiana Hospital Trauma Center. She was pronounced dead late Friday night, according to investigators.

On Wednesday police located the suspect and striking vehicle. They describe it as a black, Geo Tracker type SUV with a possible Maryland registration and damage to the right front end. Police say they will release more information on the incident as well as the suspect's identity pending charges.
