Swampscott police: Woman injured in hit-and-run

SWAMPSCOTT — Police say a 51-year-old woman sustained a severe ankle injury during a hit-and-run accident on Magnolia Road yesterday evening.

About 7:30 p.m., police responded to 116 Magnolia Road after a report that a woman had been overheard yelling that she’d been hurt, according to radio reports and an interview with Detective Sgt. Tim Cassidy. Officers determined the woman had been struck while she was retrieving belongings from her car, which was parked in the driveway at that address.

The vehicle fled the scene afterward and was last seen traveling in the direction of Forest Avenue. It was described in radio reports as a dark red, grey or black minivan or SUV of an unknown make. It possibly sustained damage to its front end or passenger-side tire during the incident.

The woman was transported to Salem Hospital by ambulance after the Fire Department treated her at the scene.

State police and Swampscott detectives are investigating.

There had been no arrests related to the incident as of press time last night.
