Police are still looking for the driver involved in a hit and run Saturday morning on Highway 102 that sent a 60-year-old woman to hospital with serious injuries.

Police say the driver was speeding in Dartmouth on Windmill Rd around 9:10am, when only ten minutes later, was seen driving in the wrong direction on Highway 118.

Only about 15 minutes after that, the driver then drove outbound in the inbound lanes on Highway 102 near Miller Lake, which caused a head on collision.

The driver then ran into the woods.

Two women involved in the collision, 38 and 33-years-old, had minor injuries.

The suspect was driving a blue Toyota Echo with Nova Scotia license plate GYT158.

Police ask if anyone has photos or videos of the collision, or a description of the driver, to contact them.
