Police searching for damaged Ford Mustang, similar to this one
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Police need help finding the driver in a hit and run traffic incident where a woman was killed. Officials are looking for a damaged Ford Mustang.
On Monday, November 9, 2009 at 1:45 a.m. Heather Miller was driving west on Interstate 24. She lost control of her SUV and smashed into a retaining wall near Harding Place.
Miller was not wearing a seatbelt. The impact ejected her on to the roadway, and a few moments later a blue Mustang hit her. The 36-year-old woman died.
"A police officer was actually pulling up to the scene as this all happened as Ms. Miller got run over by the Mustang. The police officer saw the Mustang, saw the Mustang stop up the roadway, but he stopped to render aid and by the time he went to go check on the Mustang, the Mustang had already left," said Harold Burke with the Metro Nashville Police Department.
Police are looking for the driver of the Mustang. The Mustang was blue and it was a 2000 to 2004 model.
"We believe there was some damage done to the Mustang. There were some after market parts found on the scene," said Burke.
Police hope someone will remember seeing the car either at the scene or parked somewhere.
"What I would hope is that this occured on the interstate. I've talked to several people already, and I'm sure there are several other people that may have witnessed this. I'd like them to come forward, so I can talk to them," said Burke.
