By: Andrew Krammer

Dorothy Hanson, 85, was hit and killed by a truck as she tried to cross a street in Bloomington on Thursday night, the Star Tribune reports.

The driver of the truck fled from the accident and pieces of the truck were found at the scene, police said. The cause of the incident is unclear, but police said there's little doubt the driver knows they hit something, WCCO reports.

Hanson's son told police she was returning home after visiting her husband in the nursing home a few blocks away.
