Richland police are asking for the public's help in identifying a woman who may have hit a skateboarder and then drove away.
The woman was turning on Lee Boulevard on Tuesday morning when she caused a skateboarder to fall, police said. It's unclear if the woman collided with the skateboarder.
The woman reportedly stopped and offered the skateboarder a ride and money, police said. She then told the skateboarder she couldn’t stay because she had to pick up her children.
The skateboarder -- who rode away following the incident -- went to the emergency room, where “significant” injuries were discovered, police said.
The woman was driving either a gray or silver Mercedes Benz sedan, police said. The car has tinted windows and custom rims.
The woman is described as being between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-7, weighing about120 pounds, with dark hair and dark eyes.
Anyone with information about the incident can contact the Richland Police Department at 509-942-7716,
