A 28-year-old woman was hit by a car in Hickory Monday night and police are looking for the driver who fled the scene of the accident.
Around 7:40 p.m. a car—described only as a sky blue passenger car—was traveling southbound on U.S. Route 1 north of the Hickory bypass when it hit a woman, according to a release from the Maryland State Police Bel Air Barrack.
A witness told police the woman was on or near the road waving her arms and the car swerved, apparently trying to avoid her, according to the release.
Instead of avoiding her, however, the car's passenger side mirror hit the woman. The car pulled to the side of the road about 500 feet from the accident before pulling away, according to the release.
A witness then called 911.
The woman was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore for treatment where she remained in stable condition Monday night. Police have not released the identity of the woman.
The official Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company Twitter feed states the victim was reportedly pregnant.
Rich Gardiner, spokesman for the Harford County Volunteer Fire and EMS Association, said that while there were reports that the victim was pregnant, that detail had not been confirmed.
Police are asking anyone with information about the hit-and-run accident to contact the Maryland State Police Bel Air Barrack at 410-879-2101.
