Woman, dog killed in Plymouth hit-and-run, driver sought

She was pronounced dead at the hospital

PLYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — Police in southeastern Massachusetts are searching for the driver in a hit-and-run accident that killed a 69-year-old woman and her dog.

Authorities say Marjorie Cochrane and her dog died Thursday after they were struck by a vehicle in Plymouth shortly before 8 a.m.

Police say Cochrane lived near the accident site and was walking her dog when they were hit. People passing by found her in the road unconscious and bleeding from her head. She was taken to a local hospital, then flown to Boston Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

Her dog also was found lying in the road.

Police didn’t provide a detailed description of the vehicle, which they believe has damage to its front end and windshield. Any witnesses are urged to call Plymouth police.
