Hit-and-Run Driver Leaves Woman in Critical Condition

A boot could be seen on the street as police investigated

Cars are parked near a sidewalk. A Philadelphia police officer steps out of her cruiser, which has its lights on, as she looks on at the pavement, where a boot can be seen, following a hit-and-run crash.

A woman was in critical condition Sunday after being hit by a driver who fled the scene in North Philadelphia.

Police said the woman had struck three parked vehicles shortly before 4 a.m. on the 200 block of E. Cheltenham Avenue, in the city’s Oak Lane neighborhood, and gotten out of her own car to survey the damage. That’s when, police said, another car sped by and hit her.

The driver did not stop and left the woman on the road. A boot could be seen on the street as police investigated.

Police said the suspect vehicle may be a dark-colored sedan, possibly an Audi. They said they found the front bumper at the scene. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Philadelphia Police Department.
