YARMOUTH, MASS. (WHDH) - Police are searching for a hit-and-run suspect who left a woman seriously injured in Yarmouth on Tuesday night.

Emergency crews responding to a call about an injured pedestrian on Route 28 just after 9:30 p.m. found a 62-year-old woman suffering from serious injuries, according to Yarmouth police.

She was transported to Cape Cod Hospital before being flown to a Boston hospital via MedFlight.
