Akron Police say a 62 year old woman was thrown 80 feet and critically injured by a hit-skip driver who was probably speeding in the 200 block of East Market Street, a little before 1:00AM Thursday morning.
The woman is in the hospital now, and her name is being withheld pending notification of relatives, and further investigation.
There was a witness to the incident, though, who told police that the vehicle who crashed into the woman and then continued heading eastbound, was a silver SUV– though they were not able to identify the make or model.
