The Brookfield Police Department has asked for the public's assistance in finding the driver of a vehicle that killed a pedestrian.

According to a post on the department's Facebook page, an unidentified female pedestrian was struck by the vehicle while she was walking in the intersection of Sandy Lane and Homestead Lane at about 6:10 PM last evening (November 6). After striking the woman, police say the vehicle immediately left the scene at a very high speed, and headed eastbound on Sandy Lane toward Old Gray's Bridge Road.

It is likely that the car was damaged during the crash, probably the center or left side of the front fender, hood, and windshield.

Anyone who was in that area, either driving or on foot, who may have seen the fleeing vehicle is asked to call Detective Sergeant Michael O'Brien at the Brookfield Police Department immediately at 203-740-4121.

The name of the victim is not being release right away. This is a developing story, and we'll be sure to keep you posted.
