Cheltenham Township police are searching for the motorist who hit and killed a pedestrian in Wyncote and then fled last night.

The 8:10 p.m. accident occurred on Cheltenham Avenue between Mt. Airy Avenue and Easton Road. The pedestrian, 53, of Sydenham Street near Chelten Avenue in West Oak Lane, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her name wasn't released, pending the notification of family.

A witness told police the hit-and-run vehicle was a light gray, older-model, full-size, four-door sedan, possibly a Buick LeSabre or Ford Thunderbird. It sustained damage to the passenger-side front and windshield. The driver was a black man in his 20s with bushy hair, wearing a tan jacket. The motorist fled south on Ivy Hill Road from Cheltenham Avenue.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Cheltenham police at (215) 885-1600, ext. 0, or the department's anonymous tip line at (215) 885-1600, ext. 777.
