Minneapolis police are asking for help from the public to find a hit-and-run driver who fatally struck a woman crossing Nicollet Avenue S. at 43rd Street on Sunday.

The woman, whose name has not been released, was hit about 5 p.m. and died Monday at Hennepin County Medical Center, police spokesman Scott Seroka said.

The driver continued north on Nicollet after hitting the woman. The car was described only as a dark sedan, police said.

Officers canvassed the area immediately after the incident, talking to residents and business owners. Investigators are hoping to find more witnesses or see if there is any surveillance video.

Anyone with information is asked to text their tip to 847411 (TIP411). Enter MPD, a space, and then the information. All text messages are anonymous. People also can call 612-692-8477.
