Woman Killed In Hit And Run In Merced

A woman is dead after being hit by a car and the Merced CHP is looking for the person who drove away after hitting her.

Officers say they got a call about a body on the road at Santa Fe and Business Park Way just after 1:00 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Merced County sheriff's deputies were first on scene and found the woman dead on the eastbound lanes of Santa Fe Drive.

CHP investigators say they do not know how long the woman may have been there.

They say evidence shows the woman was hit by a car while trying to cross the street and that the driver did not stop.

Officers are looking for a teal green sedan or truck.

They believe the car involved was a late 80s or early 90s vehicle and may have some front end damage.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Merced California Highway Patrol Office.
