July 10, 2018

LOWELL -- Police are asking for the public’s help as they work to identify a driver who drove away after striking a 46-year-old woman who was in a mobility scooter on Middlesex Street Tuesday night.

The woman, whose name police have not released, suffered serious injuries and was flown to a Boston-area hospital by MedFlight following the crash, according to police.

Police say the woman was struck about 10:09 p.m., as she was driving her scooter in the area of 1460 Middlesex St.

The vehicle that struck her is believed to have been a Mercury Sable with a model year between 2000 and 2004, according to police. The vehicle should have heavy front-end damage, and may also have blue paint transfer on its front from hitting the scooter.

Interim Police Superintendent Jack Webb said Monday police continue to investigate the crash, and released a surveillance photo that shows the vehicle fleeing the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lowell police at 978-937-3200. Those who wish to remain anonymous are asked to call Crimestoppers at 978-459-TIPS (8477).
