The Erie County Sheriff's Office reports the driver of a commercial truck involved in a hit and run on Harris Hill Road in Clarence has turned themselves in to deputies. That incident left a woman seriously injured. The name of the individual is being withheld until investigators determine which charged will be filed.

Deputies responded to the call at around 5:40 p.m. on December 4.

According to the sheriff's office, initial reports say a 51-year-old woman from Williamsville was hit by a passing truck along Harris Hill near Stonehaven Drive while walking her dog.

The woman was taken to Erie County Medical Center with injuries. While at the hospital, it was determined that the woman suffered a serious brain injury, fractured skull, and an arm injury. The woman has since been released from the hospital.

Investigators recovered pieces of a mirror at the scene with a partial part number, which investigators believe is from the striking vehicle. Investigators also collected video from a nearby private security camera, which shows a white truck traveling southbound on Harris Hill Road, shortly after the collision.
