Vandergrift Police say they are looking for a driver that hit a man on a motorcycle and then fled the scene Wednesday.

Police found the motorcyclist conscious and alert on a sidewalk in front of Solomon's mini market in the 600 block of Hancock Avenue shortly after 5 p.m., according to police Sgt. Anthony DePanicis.

The victim was hit while driving east on Walnut Street when a newer burgundy Ford Focus coming from the opposing direction, tried to make a left onto Hancock and hit the motorcyclist, DePanicis said.

The driver, a white middle-aged woman with blonde and gray hair in a bun, stopped and got out of her car, spoke to the motorcyclist and a witness, then fled the scene, police said.

Police are still looking for the driver and ask the public to call them with any details at 724-568-5507.
