The woman was transported to a local hospital in critical condition. She suffered multiple serious injuries, said Vanegas.

The driver did not stay at the scene. At this time, there is no suspect or vehicle description.

The sheriff's office is still working the evidence to hopefully figure out a make and model of the vehicle, said Vanegas.

However, the vehicle should have front-end damage to the passenger side headlight area.

Lower Buckeye Road was closed at 127th Avenue while authorities investigated the hit-and-run collision.
