Police Look For Hit & Run Driver

Police Look For Hit & Run Driver

A hit and run crash Monday morning in Sioux Falls has a woman fighting for her life.
Police say the victim is in critical condition after she was struck by a car while crossing the street near Sanford Hospital. Now police are asking for the public's help in locating the driver.

Police have been reconstructing the scene of the hit and run crash on Grange Avenue, that left a 58-year-old woman with life-threatening injuries.

"There were two women crossing Grange Avenue, one of them made it across the street, the other one was struck by this car," Sioux Falls police public information officer Sam Clemens said.

The hit and run crash happened at 7:15 a.m. Monday. The driver was heading south at the time of the crash. Witnesses told police it appeared the driver was speeding, but police have not confirmed that.

"She was hit, went up in the air, not sure exactly what part of the car she hit. We believe there's front end damage to the car and possibly a broken windshield," Clemens said.

Police say the driver never stopped, but they should have known they had hit something.

"Whether they were paying attention or not and didn't see them, but anytime you hit somebody and they fly up in the air, I mean, especially if you have damage to your windshield, you're going to know that," Clemens said.

Witnesses didn't get a good look at the driver, but they did get a good description of the car. Police say they are looking for a four door 2001 to 2005 Honda Civic, silver or light blue with front end damage on the passenger's side. If you have any information, you're asked to call police.

The woman's name hasn't been released.
