Authorities are searching for the driver behind the wheel of a Lincoln Town Car who struck a 60-year-old woman in South Boston Monday.

The woman was crossing Day Boulevard using the crosswalk near K Street when she was hit around 7:17 a.m., according to Massachusetts State Police.

"The car hit the woman, knocking her to the ground, and the driver then continued to travel toward L Street," police said in a statement. "Subsequent investigation by troopers indicates that as it fled the area, the car turned left onto L Street and then took an immediate right onto Columbia Road."

The woman was brought to a Boston hospital with serious injuries, officials said. She remained hospitalized late Monday night.

Authorities said the vehicle is believed to be a mid- to late-2000s Lincoln Town Car, "possibly silver or light beige in color."

"The vehicle has dark tint on its rear passenger windows and its rear window, but no tint on the front windows," officials said. "Also of note, the vehicle sustained damage to its front driver's side in the crash, and the driver's sideview mirror was broken off in the impact and was recovered at the scene."

Anyone with information about the incident, the vehicle, or the driver is asked to call State Police at 617-740-7710.
