Brockton Police search for hit-and-run driver
BROCKTON, Mass. (WHDH) -- Police hope surveillance pictures will help track down a hit-and-run driver who hit a pedestrian and took off.
The 38-year-old woman was hospitalized. Police are now looking for any information about who was behind the wheel of the car that hit her as she was crossing Center Street in Brockton.
Police say the woman was seriously injured as she crossed. Cars in one lane of traffic had stopped but the other lane did not. Witnesses say the car never paused.
A surveillance camera captured a picture moments after the car hit the woman. Witnesses described it as a gold 4-door Honda with rims and a broken window.
The woman was still conscious after the impact as bystanders tried to help.
“A lot of people out here were trying to figure out what kind of car, the color and all,” one witness said.
“There were people that did stop and help,” Lieutenant Dave Dickinson said. “There was actually a person that followed the suspect vehicle that took off but were unable to keep up with it.”
The Easton woman was flown to Boston with multiple fractures. She remained in the ICU Monday morning.
Anyone with information about this hit-and-run has been asked to call Brockton Police.
