Clayton County police are looking for a black Dodge Charger with front-end damage after a woman was hit and killed on a busy road earlier this month.

The unidentified woman was struck about 5:30 a.m. in the area of Ga. 138 and Tara Boulevard, according to police. The driver who hit her was not at the scene when police arrived.

“Witnesses advised that the car was more than likely a newer model black in color Dodge Charger,” police spokesman Lt. Kevin Hughes said in a news release. “Investigators advised that the car should have damage to the front right side.”

Witnesses told police the Charger slowed down after hitting the pedestrian but fled the scene shortly after. Read more on the case here.
