A 29-year-old Windsor woman has died following a hit-and-run accident on Cottage Grove Road on Monday, June 22.

The name of the victim, who passed away over the weekend at a hospital, has not been released.

According to an MPD traffic incident report, the deceased was walking with her boyfriend when she began to cross Cottage Grove Road near Walgreens in the 4500 block. The boyfriend reportedly saw a black Dodge Charger strike the victim. He said the vehicle stopped briefly and then took off.

At the time, the victim’s injuries were considered very critical and life-threatening.

The incident took place at 1:08 a.m.
