Dallas police have a couple of pictures showing the SUV they've been looking for since Friday night when an elderly woman was run down in North Dallas.

Police say a 71-year-old woman named Portia Dickens was struck on Esperanza Road a few blocks west of Central Expressway.

Police say the SUV involved in the incident resembles a Chevy Suburban. It was seen heading north on Esperanza when the driver ran over Dickens who died at the hospital.

Witnesses saw the SUV keep going north until it turned right on Midpark where it was last seen heading east.

The Dallas Police photos show the SUV has one headlight out but it's not clear if it was broken by the impact.
