Police in Chester are looking for the driver who hit and killed a woman, then drove away from the scene.



The victim was 24-year-old Marion Bennett from Boothwyn, Pennsylvania.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police found the vehicle they believed was involved less than an hour after the incident.

"It was so devastating and so forceful that it knocked her boots and actually her socks off of her body," said Whelan.

Scott did make a statement, police say, admitting he hit the victim and left the scene.

He has been charged with homicide by vehicle, involuntary manslaughter and other offenses.
