WALNUT CREEK — California Highway Patrol investigators are asking for the public’s help in locating a suspect vehicle that fled a hit-and-run scene last week.
Around 8:50 a.m. Thursday, CHP officers responded to Treat Boulevard and Cherry Lane, and found an injured 78-year-old woman. The woman was taken to an area hospital for treatment of a fractured hip and abrasions to her arm.
Investigators said that the woman was crossing in a crosswalk when a pickup truck southbound on Cherry turned right onto westbound Treat lanes and struck her, knocking her to the roadway.
The truck was described as a silver newer model with an extended cab, and police provided only a limited description of the driver, but did say he may have been on his cell phone at the time.
Officers were also looking for a person who was driving behind the pickup and stopped to help the woman back to the sidewalk, but left before giving personal information.
Anyone with information who saw the collision or may recognize the pickup should call the CHP’s Contra Costa office at 925-646-4980 and ask for Officer Matthew Heminez.
