WINDHAM, MaineA 10-year-old Windham girl is in satisfactory condition at Maine Medical Center in Portland after she was injured in a hit-and-run crash on Albion Road on Friday afternoon.

Savanna Demmons was struck by a passenger-side mirror and pieces of the mirror covering were picked up at the scene, Sgt. James Boudreau of the Windham Police Department said in a release. The collision occurred near the intersection of Albion Road and Overlook Road.

After listening to Demmons and witnesses, police believe that the truck was a Chevrolet with a red Boss-brand V-shaped plow. The truck was described as having a silver ladder rack behind the cab and at the rear of the bed. It was last seen heading towards Roosevelt Trail.
