• Woman, 60, seriously hurt in Oakland hit-and-run


    PITTSBURGH - Police said they're searching for a driver who hit a 60-year-old pedestrian in Oakland on Friday.

    Investigators said the accident happened just before 7 a.m. when the woman was crossing Bates Street.

    Officials said two people witnessed the accident and said the car involved was a Chevy Cobalt.

    College students who live in the area said they cross the street often while walking to class.

    "That could have easily been me or any other student," said Pitt student Chelsea Limbacher.

    Police said they're checking surveillance video to see if they can identify the driver.

    The victim, whose name was not released, is in critical condition.
