UPDATE: Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Cambridge Police Commissioner Robert Haas have announced that they have located the suspect vehicle in connection with a hit-and-run crash involving an individual in a wheelchair early Sunday morning at approximately 4:40 a.m. They have also identified a Somerville resident as the driver of the car. This remains an open and active investigation and no charges have yet been filed.
Cambridge Police are looking for the driver of a car that hit a 77-year-old woman in a wheelchair early Sunday on Columbia Street near Lincoln Street, then drove off, leaving her with critical injuries for which she is still hospitalized.
Police say the woman was headed south on the side of Columbia around 4:40 a.m. when hit – apparently head on, by a driver heading north, who then continued towards Somerville, via Webster Avenue and Prospect Street.
Police say the car was a 1996-1999 Taurus, either green or blue and it likely to have damage to its front bumper and headlights and possibly its hood.
