    Police learned the woman was traveling westbound on foot with the assistance of a walker when a vehicle that was traveling eastbound on Upton struck her.

    The suspect was a white male in his mid-twenties, approximately 5?08? with shoulder-length light brown hair, and brown eyes.  He was wearing a grey-colored T-shirt, blue jeans, and tan work boots.
