DULUTH - On Saturday, June 17th, 2012 between approximately 2:00 AM and 2:20 AM, Duluth Police investigated a hit and run crash near South Lake Avenue and 11th Street on Park Point.
A 23 year-old Duluth female was struck while crossing the street in this area by an unknown vehicle that left the scene.
