KILLEEN (July 23, 2013)—Investigators have tracked down a pickup truck and a driver involved in a hit-and-run last week in Killeen that left a woman dead, police said.
Police didn’t say whether the driver was in custody and provided no details about where or when the truck and the driver were located.
Investigators were looking for a 2002 to 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 that may be blue and should have right front end damage after the hit-and-run early Thursday on Stan Schlueter Loop.
The victim was identified as Janice Marie Zeigler, 54.
Officers found her body after responding to reports at around 1:45 a.m. Thursday that someone was lying in the road in the 2200 block of Stan Schlueter Loop.
Zeigler evidently was walking in the westbound lanes when she was struck by a vehicle whose driver did not stop, police said.
She was pronounced dead at the scene and an autopsy was ordered.
