WALPOLE (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) Police in Walpole are searching for the driver involved in a hit and run over the weekend.

Investigators say a female was riding a bicycle on Washington Street near Clinton Avenue at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday when a truck traveling in the same direction hit her. She was thrown from the bicycle and the driver fled the scene. Investigators believe the driver returned to the scene a short while later as the bicyclist remained in the street and drove away again.
