A as yet unidentified woman was killed in the early morning hours Saturday after being hit by a vehicle that left the scene.

According to a preliminary report, the woman was walking northbound off the roadway on Hazel Street when the driver of a vehicle apparently lost control, left the roadway and hit the woman, then left the scene.


The accident was reported at 6:20 a.m. near 34th Avenue and Hazel Street.

Jefferson County Coroner Chad Kelley told Deltaplex News Tuesday that the State Medical Examiner is attempting to confirm the identity of the woman.

The death was the 238th so far this year on the state’s roads and highways.
