Officers with the Phoenix Police Department are searching for the driver who hit and killed a pedestrian Saturday night and then fled the scene.
Sgt. Trent Crump says a woman was killed while crossing the street near 27th Avenue and Van Buren when she was hit by a small, yellow pickup truck.
The driver of the pickup truck did not stay on scene, according to Crump.
At this time, police are still investigating the crash so 27th Avenue is closed at Van Buren.
Please avoid the area for a little while longer.
