LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police have released images of a car investigators are looking for after a woman was killed in a hit-and-run accident early Saturday morning.
It happened about 5 a.m. April 22 in the 4600 block of East Indian Trail between Poplar Level Road and Newburg Road.
That's where officers found the body of 35-year-old Monedria Malone. Investigators believe she was hit by a car headed westbound on East Indian Trail. Malone died at the scene.
Witnesses told police they saw a black man get out to assess the damage to his car, and that it had a cracked front window and a deployed airbag. Based on information from witnesses, police initially believed the vehicle was a 2-door Honda or Kia.
According to a post on the LMPD Facebook page, investigators now "believe that a dark color Nissan Murano/Rogue driven by a black man of African descent is possibly involved or a witness to this tragic collision. The vehicle could have damage to the front windshield."
