PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Cheltenham Township Police looking for additional information about a recent hit and run that critically injured a woman are reaching out to the public in an unusual way.

Cheltenham Chief of Police John Norris explains.

“Besides all other investigative methods, we put a signboard out on Ogontz Avenue that asks people to call our tipline if they have any information concerning this accident.”

Norris says a woman was struck by a car in the southbound lanes of Ogonz Avenue by what he describes as a dark gray 2004 to 2008 Nissan Maxima. Norris says the car should be missing the passenger side mirror among other front end damage.

The victim is still in critical condition at Abington Hospital.

“People usually use the same roads every day,” he said. “So we’re hoping people who were on the road that Sunday will see the sign and something will jar their memory.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 215-885-1600 x777
