Woman Critically Injured in Hit-and-Run on Bailey Avenue in Buffalo
The incident on Walden was the second hit-and-run that happened this weekend.

The 37-year-old woman sustained multiple injuries from the accident, which happened Friday afternoon around 4 pm. She was transported to Erie County Medical Center.

I hope that police are able to find the drivers in both incidents. I was hit by a car as a pedestrian, back when I was 16-years-old. The injuries I sustained still affect me today. The family of the woman who was killed and the woman who is injured should get justice. My thoughts are with both victims 🙏
