BANGOR, Maine — Police are on the lookout for a motorist driving a black Subaru sport utility vehicle who reportedly struck a pedestrian Thursday night on Union Street and then left without stopping to offer help.

The incident happened shortly before 9 p.m., as the motorist was making a right turn from the Interstate 95 off ramp onto Union Street, Bangor police Sgt. Jim Buckley said Friday, citing a police report.

The victim, a Bangor woman, was taken to the hospital for treatment of back pain. Further details about her medical condition were not available Friday.

Buckley said the woman told police the driver who struck her stopped briefly, said “Yeah, you look fine,” and then continued on his way.

She described the driver as an older man with a beard and glasses but was not able to provide a license plate number.
