A Sabattus woman was killed in a hit-and-run crash on Sunday evening.

A black Dodge Ram 1500 pickup truck hit 28-year-old Renata Schalk at around 5:18 p.m. Bowdoinham Road, according to Daniel C. Davies, the interim chief of the Sabattus Police Department.

She died at the scene.

The vehicle left the area after hitting Schalk and went west toward Middle Road. The truck was seen on home security footage, and appeared to have a heavy dent in its front end, Davies said.

The truck was later located in Lewiston, and the suspect was taken into custody, according to Davies. The suspect has yet not been identified.

The hit and run remains under investigation.

Anyone with any information about the hit and run can contact the Sabattus Police Department at 207-375-6952.
