State patrol looking for semi in hit-and-run that injured pedestrian

Authorities in Becker County are asking the public for help in locating a semi that hit a pedestrian east of Detroit Lakes.

The 42-year-old woman was hit Thursday night on Highway 34 in Hight of Land Township and suffered serious injuries.

State troopers say the truck is a white Volvo tractor, model years 2016, 2017 or 2018. The Volvo trailer, in an updated post, is a VNL 64.

It was pulling a flatbed trailer with two pieces of machinery or other load covered with a tarp on the back.

The right front headlight is out and the tractor has noticeable damage to the front right bumper and headlight area.
