Woman “Critical” After Hit & Run Accident

PALM BEACH (CBSMiami/AP) – Two adults and three children were rushed to the hospital after they were struck by a hit and run driver in Lake Worth.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office reports one of the adults, a female, is in critical condition.
The children, who range from 3 to 17 years of age, sustained minor injuries.

Deputies are looking for a beige 2000 Ford SUV that likely has front end damage. The vehicle also has a Mickey Mouse sticker on the front passenger side.

Investigators say they do have a person of interest in the case who may have been involved in an argument with the pedestrians earlier Sunday morning.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-458-TIPS.
