WHY:
On September 4, 2020, around 5 p.m., a 70-year female Hispanic, was crossing Broadway, at College Street. She was in the crosswalk and had the "Walk" signal. A black possible 2003 to 2006 Mercedes-Benz C230, which was travelling westbound on College Street, made a southbound left turn onto Broadway. The driver collided into the female, catapulting her into the air, and she landed on the street. The driver did stop, exited the vehicle, however fled the scene without rendering aid or identifying himself.

The female sustained a brain bleed, broke her neck, clavicle, and pelvis, and it required her to be admitted into Intensive Care Unit.

Video, photos, and a sketch drawing of the driver's facial image will be released.
