NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police on Wednesday were searching for two drivers responsible for a hit-and-run accident, in which a woman was injured by three different cars and was left in critical condition in the Bronx.

At 8:50 p.m. on Friday, March 8, the 46-year-old woman was trying to cross Westchester Avenue at Faile Street, in the Foxhurst section of the Bronx, when she was struck by a dark sedan headed west on Westchester Avenue, police said.

The woman hit her head on the front of a second car – a 2011 Mercedes Benz, police said. While she lay on the ground, a third car – a burgundy Dodge Durango, possibly of the 2002 model year – hit the woman again as it headed east on Westchester Avenue, police said.

Only the driver of the Mercedes, on which the woman hit her head, stayed at the scene. The two drivers who actually struck the woman both fled the scene.

The woman was taken to Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center, where she was listed in critical, but stable condition, with trauma about her body, police said.

Police attached a photo of a 2002 burgundy Dodge Durango, like the vehicle that hit the woman.

Anyone with information in regard to the accident is asked to contact the NYPD Crime Stoppers, at (800) 577-TIPS, log onto the Crime Stoppers Web site, or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) and enter TIP577.
