DENISON, TX - An elderly woman was flown to the hospital early this morning after she was hit by a car that never stopped.

Denison police say a 78-year-old woman was hit just before 12:30 AM
at the 400th block of west Crawford Street in Denison. Investigators say the suspect was driving eastbound in a dark colored vehicle.
The woman was treated by Denison EMS and then flown by helicopter to a Plano hospital. Police say the woman's injuries are not life threatening. But they're still looking for the driver involved in the accident. Anyone with any information is urged to contact the Denison Police Department.

    As the granddaughter of the woman who was ran over I would like to start by letting you all know that she is doing very well and should be out of the hospital in 2 to 3 weeks. For those of you who want to know why she was out at that time of night, she was celebrating her sons birthday with him and his wife, these are my parents. And the only information we have still to this day is that it was a small car that was dark colored, when your Mom gets hit by a car the last thing your worried about is getting a description of the car. My parents and one of their friends are the only ones that saw the car hit her.

    This is terrible! What kind of person could hit an elderly person and drive off? I wonder what a woman this age was doing out after midnight?

      Are you nuts??? A better question is who is the S.O.B. that hit her. What was he/she doing out driving a car at that time of night. I bet whoever hit her was drunk or high.

    Car, SUV? Dark colored vehicle doesn't really sum it up and I'm sure they can give at least that info.
    Glad that she doesn't have any life threatening injuries.

    I glad it wasn't life threatening and she'll be ok. But, I just gotta ask what is a 78 year old woman doing walking Crawford St. that time of night?

      You and Anonymous on Mar 12, 2012 at 08:30 AM must be in the same gene pool. Since when is it a crime for a 78 year old woman to go walking after midnight or any other time for that matter. Are you implying that because she is 78 she had no business being outside? Stop trying to place blame on her and place it where it belongs. On the piece of dung that ran this lady down and kept on going without a second thought. My prayers are for this lady and her family.

        I have a right to voice my anonymous gene pool opinion. I hope they catch that s.o.b too. There's really not much to go on by the article as to who was at fault.

        I,m the daughter-in-law of the victim. I agree with John Q. I don't think its a crime for an elderly person to take a walk. She wasn't just out for a stroll. She was simply crossing the street to get into my car. We had been at the American Legion for dinner and to hear a band perform. As for your questions about the car it zoomed by at appropriately 50 MPH, all we know is it was dark small and has 4 doors. Another person who saw the car said they have damage to the left front finder.
