CHANDLER, AZ — A woman in a wheelchair was left with serious injuries after a hit-and-run crash in Chandler.

The crash occurred near Arizona Avenue and Ray Road on Friday morning.

Police say the victim was crossing Ray Road northbound in a wheel chair when she was struck by a dark colored Dodge Carvan that was traveling westbound on Ray Road.

Police say the victim was taken to the hospital with serious injuries and the driver who struck the person did not stay at the scene.

The driver fled south on Iowa Street into the neighborhood, according to witnesses. The driver is described as a Hispanic male, in his late 30's, wearing a dark colored hat with a mustache.

The vehicle should have damage to the driver's side front bumper.
