CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Police say they are looking for a white Chevrolet van missing part of a black grill on the front and the carmaker’s bowtie logo that struck and killed a woman as she crossed a Charlotte street.

Investigators said the driver of the van did not stop Thursday night after hitting 51-year-old Margaret Rutledge on U.S. 29 in northeast Charlotte.

Police say they were no witnesses to the crash, but parts of the van were found at the scene. Investigators released what they think is surveillance footage of the van minutes before the wreck.
