Holyoke Police are asking for the public’s help in finding an SUV involved in a hit and run incident that occurred Saturday night on the corner of Lyman and Walnut Street.

The Holyoke Police Department told Western Mass News that the vehicle hit a pedestrian around 9:15pm.

The SUV was traveling westbound on Lyman Street when it struck the woman in the road.
