A 56-year-old woman was struck and killed Sunday evening by a vehicle on Route 302 in Casco, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office said.

The hit-and-run occurred about 6:10 p.m. near the Naples town line, said Chief Deputy Naldo Gagnon.

Gagnon said it’s not certain what type of vehicle hit the pedestrian, but evidence left at the scene indicates it was a Volkswagen.

The name of the victim is being withheld pending notification of her family.

Route 302 was reopened to traffic about 9:15 p.m.

Gagnon asked that anyone with information about the incident call the sheriff’s office at 800-501-1111 or 800-266-1444.
