Tulsa police are seeking information about a car that struck an 80-year-old pedestrian on Cherry Street Saturday.
Joann Carlson was hit in the crosswalk of 1500 E. 15th St. around 7:30 p.m. Saturday, police said.
Authorities believe an eastbound white or silver sedan — possibly a Lincoln, Cadillac or Taurus — struck Carlson and continued driving.
“The vehicle was a newer model and had nice tires and rims,” said Officer Leland Ashley.
Carlson, who suffered several injuries, was transported to St. John Medical Center, he said.
A family member told the Tulsa World Carlson remained hospitalized in critical condition on Tuesday.
