Police locate multiple cars involved in deadly Bucks County hit-and-run

Police in Middletown Township say they have located three vehicles they say were involved in a deadly hit and run on Route 1 early Monday morning.

According to investigators, 29-year-old Alexandra Ridgway, was either walking along Route 1 or attempting to cross the highway around 3:30 a.m. when she was struck numerous times by passing vehicles.

A Ford F-550 flatbed tow truck, a Dodge Caravan mini-van, and a VW Passat were all taken into police custody as they work to determine the extent of each vehicle’s involvement in the incident. The drivers and owners are cooperating with police.

At this time, police say they do not have any information about the first vehicle to strike Ridgway, but say they believe they are looking for a large vehicle like a large truck or tractor-trailer.
