Ipswich Police failed to return multiple phone calls, emails and in-person interview attempts by the Ipswich Chronicle over Monday and Tuesday of this week regarding what the department said was a hit-and-run accident Friday night in a South Main Street crosswalk.
The accident would be the second time a pedestrian was struck in an Ipswich crosswalk in a month.
A woman was injured in a hit-and-run while walking in an Ipswich crosswalk with four children Friday night, according to police.
The woman was hit while crossing South Main Street near Elm Street around 7:15 p.m., police said.
"The suspect vehicle initially stopped but then pulled forward and struck the pedestrian," police wrote in a statement posted by Wicked Local news partner WCVB. "The vehicle then fled South towards Hamilton/Essex."
Police described the vehicle as a dark-colored sedan with a white male driver in his 40s or 50s and white female passenger who was possibly a teenager. The car's license plate number may have included "4XM," police said.
Information about the extent of the woman's injuries was not available and police failed to return inquiries regarding any injuries sustained, the investigation’s progress or the vehicle’s estimated speed.
Anyone with information about the hit-and-run is asked to contact police at 978-356-4343.
The first pedestrian, a 13-year-old minor, struck in a crosswalk occurred Saturday, Nov. 10, at approximately 4 p.m., on Central Street, at the intersection of Mineral Street.
Police cited the driver, a 35-year-old man from Rowley, for failure to yield to pedestrian in a crosswalk.
