 blew through a flashing yellow traffic light and ran down a woman in a crosswalk on Elm Street last night, then sped off with a civilian in another car giving chase, police said.

The car that struck the woman, upending her high into the air and seriously injuring her, managed to shake off the pursuing witness a few blocks away when the driver turned the wrong way on Cedar cedar, common name for a number of trees, mostly coniferous evergreens. The true cedars belong to the small genus Cedrus of the family Pinaceae (pine family).  Street and headed back toward downtown against the flow of traffic, said Officer Thomas A.

The woman was struck in a residential neighborhood at the intersection of Elm and Sever TO SEVER, practice.

"Witnesses said her legs went up over her head. We found her shoes, one of them, at the scene. She landed roughly 60 feet from the point of impact," Officer Feraco said. "She probably rode on the windshield for a while."

Police were still trying to identify the victim, thought to be in her 40s, last night at press time. She didn't have any identification on her, but police were trying to identify her based on supermarket rewards cards she had on her key chain, Officer Feraco said.

"We're going around to the markets with her key chain," he said.

The woman was listed in critical condition at UMass Memorial Medical Center - University Campus last night.

"She has a broken left leg and severe head trauma. She has a hole in the back of her head," Officer Feraco said.

"They never stopped. They just sped off," Officer Feraco said. "We had a witness sort of chasing them. They went right on Merrick Street and then the wrong way on Cedar Street back toward Lancaster (Street)."

Police said the car they're searching for likely has front-end damage around the grill on the passenger side from the impact.

The accident intersection had flashing yellow caution lights facing Elm Street drivers at the time of the hit and run.
