Yarmouth police are searching for a driver following a hit-and-run crash.

On Monday just after 10 p.m., officials responded to Route 6A in Yarmouthport for a report of a pedestrian struck by a car.

Officers found a 23-year-old woman lying on her side being comforted by a man.

They were both dressed in all black. The man identified himself as a friend of the woman. He said they were walking eastbound along the road with their back to traffic when she was hit.

The car then drove away.

The woman declined medical treatment.
