Hit-Run Victim Identified, Driver Sought

Cheltenham Police have identified the woman who was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver around 5:00PM Monday on Church Road, just east of Old York Road.

Police say 85-year-old Frances Gordon of Elkins Park was apparently walking home from the nearby Elkins Park Free Library when a late-model white or light gray work van, with a ladder on top and tinted rear windows, hit her.  The driver was a white man in his late 40’s or early 50’s, clean shaven with short hair.  After striking the victim, police say he stopped, got out and looked around, then got back in the van and drove away.  Any witnesses should call Cheltenham Township Police.
