Calgary police have released a photo of a vehicle they say may have information about a serious hit-and-run last month in the hopes of tracking down the driver.

The crash happened in the intersection of 52nd Street and 61st Avenue S.E. at about 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 19.

The victim, a woman in her 40s, was taken to hospital in serious condition, but has since been upgraded to stable condition.

She remains in hospital, police said.

The driver failed to remain at the scene.
