UPDATE: Driver has been located; fled because of fear.

On Wednesday night, 22-year-old Temple University senior Rachel Hall was riding her bicycle near the North Philadelphia campus when she was struck by a Mitsubishi Gallant and critically injured just a week before graduation.

Her father tells Action News Hall is a senior, set to graduate from the university next week. She was a goalkeeper for Temple’s lacrosse team, majored in Criminal Justice and hopes to become a police officer one day.

According to police, she was taken to Temple U. Hospital in “extremely critical condition with head and leg injuries.” That sounds just about as far from good as possible.

The car was later recovered. The driver was not.

If you can, help police track down a hit-and-run coward.
