Hellertown police have issued a news release with a few more details on a Friday night incident in which a woman was struck by a car and injured on Main Street near Saucon Valley Manor.

The case is still under investigation.

Police identified the woman who was injured as a 45-year-old borough resident, and said officers were initially called to the scene—which is in the 1000 block of Main Street—for a report of a disturbance.

When they arrived, they found the woman lying in the road. 

The incident was initially characterized as a pedestrian hit-and-run accident.
