A woman was injured by a hit-and-run driver in Norwood, Pennsylvania Saturday afternoon.
Police say the driver struck a woman who was at the intersection of Chester Pike and Cleveland Avenue at 1:11 p.m. The driver briefly stopped and got out of the vehicle and then sped off and made a right turn onto McKinley Avenue.
The woman was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
Police believe the vehicle is a black Chrysler Sebring sedan, possibly 2007 or newer, with front end damage to the driver’s side or mid-front area. Police also say it appears the vehicle had been recently cleaned from the snow and may be from the Welcome Avenue, Chester Pike area.
