LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Days after a woman was hit by a car in Valley Station and left to die, there have been no answers in the case.

Mark Russell, the father of 36-year-old Tracey Stovall, has been waiting for them.

“It's killing me not knowing exactly what happened,” said Russell.

He wants to know who hit his daughter and drove away -- and why.

“I hope it was just an accident but I just can't believe somebody would accidentally hit somebody and then leave. If it was an accident, it was an accident,” said Russell.

Stovall and a friend, whom she was staying with, were walking along Alanadale Drive near Dixie Highway around 3 a.m. on Sunday morning. Police say both women were hit from behind by a dark colored vehicle.

Stovall, a mother of three, didn't survive.

“She was a good person and she didn't deserve what happened to her,” said Stovall's daughter Alexis Brewer.

The last few days have been unimaginable for Stovall's family.

“I'm having a bad day today. I've been upset all day. I'm not really talkative today. Having a really bad day,” said Mark Russell.

Friends and family have stepped forward, starting a GoFundMe page to help raise money for funeral expenses. Stovall's daughter says every single penny will help.

“We really appreciate it. It means a whole lot,” said Alexis Brewer.

In the meantime, they continue to hope daily that the case will soon be solved. Stovall's friend who was also hit by the vehicle remains in the hospital.

“Just come forward. I mean, we forgive you for what you did. We'd like to know exactly what happened instead of having doubts about whether it was an accident or whether it was on purpose or what ,” said Mark Russell.

The family is hoping anyone with information will reach out to police. If you'd like to help the family, there are several ways to do that.
