An elderly female pedestrian was left with serious injuries, according to scanner reports, after a hit-and-run accident with a car on Central Street Friday night.

The accident was reported shortly before 9 p.m. and Peabody police and fire, along with Atlantic Ambulance, responded to the scene. According to reports, the pedestrian was struck near 20 Central St. and the Great Wall Restaurant.

The Salem News reports the victim was a 75-year-old woman who apparently bounced off the hood of the vehicle during the accident.

The suspect vehicle -- a red Nissan sedan -- fled the scene up the street toward Wilson Square and was last scene heading toward Danvers. According to initial reports, the car was driven by a Hispanic looking male.

The victim was taken to Mass. General Hospital and a state police accident reconstruction team was called to the scene.

Around 9:10 p.m., Danvers police were reporting a female resident had turned herself in at the Danvers station in connection with the accident.

According to reports, the female lives on Fowler Street and left her car parked there before walking the short distance to the station.

A wrecker was called to the scene to tow the damaged vehicle back to Peabody.
