Authorities in the Jamacha-Lomita area are searching for the driver who struck a 60-year-old woman with his car and fled the scene Monday night.

Just before 7 p.m., police got a call of a hit-and-run in the 1100 block of Cardiff Street. There, a vehicle traveled southbound on Cardiff Street as a 60-year-old woman crossed the street. The car then struck the pedestrian, causing the victim to suffer a fractured pelvis, collapsed lung and several broken ribs.

The woman was not crossing in a crosswalk at the time, according to authorities, who added that she wore dark clothing when she was hit by the car.
