POLICE are searching for a green car believed to be involved in the apparent hit-and-run death of an unidentified woman in Port Macquarie last night.
A middle-aged woman was killed when, police believe, a car heading west on Hill St about 6.15pm on Wednesday struck her.
Evidence suggests the driver is aware of the collision which happened directly under a streetlight.
A man driving along Hill St saw a woman lying by the side of the road.
He stopped and helped the woman who had suffered head injuries but she died at the scene.
“It’s believed the woman was hit by a car which, for some unknown reason, failed to stop and assist her,” Sergeant Richard Hall from Port Macquarie police said.
“We don’t know who this woman is as she wasn’t carrying any identification with her at the time. She is aged in her 30s or 40s, Caucasian in appearance and was wearing dark clothing.”
Forensic investigators and crash scene specialists were at the scene until midnight gathering debris and today police will review security footage from nearby premises.
Anyone who is aware of a green coloured car with recent damage to the panels or headlights is asked to contact Crash Investigators at Port Macquarie Police Station as soon as possible.
Similarly, if you are worried about a co-worker who has failed to arrive at work this morning who matches the description of the pedestrian, contact Port Macquarie police.
“Police are eager to speak with the driver involved, anyone who believes they may know the woman or anyone who witnessed the crash. They are urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000,” Sgt Hall said.
