Police are on the lookout for a white car with a missing passenger window that may have been involved in a hit-and-run incident early Sunday on East End Avenue near Angier Avenue.

Durham resident Sharon Hatley, 50, was hit from behind by a small car about 1:45 a.m. when she was walking in the road on East End Avenue. Hatley was taken to a hospital where she was treated for serious injuries.

The car that struck Hatley left before police got there, but officers were able to discover from remaining evidence that the vehicle likely has a missing right front window.

Investigator L.W. Cox with the Traffic Services Unit of the Durham Police Department would like to hear from anyone with information about a white car with a missing passenger window or someone attempting to repair a car with this description.

Cox can be reached at 919-560-4935, ext. 29409 or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200. Crime Stoppers pays rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases. Informants do not have to identify themselves.
