Police are searching for a suspect vehicle after a hit-and-run accident hospitalized a woman in her 30s Thursday night.

Officer Ryan Grelle, spokesman for the Denton Police Department, said the victim was crossing Locust Street from west to east near the Courthouse on the Square around 9:40 p.m. Thursday when she was struck by a black pickup or SUV in the left lane.

“The vehicle did not stop and fled the scene,” Grelle said.

The victim, whose identity has not been released, suffered serious injuries and was transported by ambulance to Denton Regional Medical Center by the Denton Fire Department.

As of late Friday afternoon, her condition was unknown, officials said.
