A teen girl was seriously injured tonight in a hit-and-run crash in Puyallup, according to police.

The girl was crossing the road about 7:30 p.m. in the 600 block of West Stewart Street, when she was hit by a vehicle traveling east on West Stewart that then fled, according to Puyallup police spokesman Capt. Scott Engle.

The girl appears to have been walking in the cross walk, heading south across West Stewart Street, Engle said.

She was taken to St. Joesph Medical Center, he said.

Engle said the suspect vehicle may be a full-size SUV, possibly something similar to a Chevrolet Suburban or Tahoe. The vehicle may have damage to its front on the passenger side, he said. Police are still trying to determine the color of the suspect vehicle.

The 700 block of West Stewart Street is blocked off as officials investigate, police said.

Further details were not immediately available. Check back for updates.
