Truck Information Update
They have re-broadened the search? I am glad I do not drive one of those trucks that were given as a description of the truck that hit the now dead woman. Very sad indeed.
Officials with the Raleigh Police Department say they are now “rescinding” a specific description of a vehicle suspected in a fatal hit-and-run, citing “updated findings.”
On Tuesday, authorities released a description saying the vehicle believed to be involved in a New Year’s Day hit-and-run was a dark-colored Chevrolet Colorado or GMC Canyon.
Now, police say while those vehicles are not eliminated as possibilities the search for the suspect vehicle is again broadened to include dark-colored mid-size pickup trucks of all makes and models.
Investigators believe the truck most likely has front end damage and was last seen traveling southbound on South Saunders Street.
The victim in that accident, 32-year-old Melissa Sue Johnson, was transported to WakeMed, where she was pronounced dead.
Anyone with information on the accident is asked to call Raleigh Police.
