More than a week after a woman was struck and left to die on a road in Bartow County, investigators are still searching for the car that hit her.
On Tuesday, they released new details of the suspect being sought in the hit-and-run death of the Cartersville woman.
The suspect is thought to drive a dark blue four-door sedan, Mr. Gordy Wright of the Georgia State Patrol said.
Ms. Christina Mae Warner, 27, was walking along Highway 41 shortly after midnight on Jan. 15 when she was struck, Mr. Wright said.
The driver of the first vehicle, the Sedan, fled the scene after hitting her, Mr. Wright said. Mr. Warner was then struck by another motorist who stopped and called police, authorities said.
That driver also provided the description of the first vehicle, Mr. Wright said.
“There is a lot of hurt, a lot of questions,” Ms. Warner’s mother, Ms. Elissa Cochran, told Channel 2 Action News. “We need to know, even if this was an accident, somebody knows they hit something in the road down there.”
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Georgia State Patrol at (770) 387-3701.
