From Metro Police March 22, 2023
Fatal crash investigators suspect a Ford F-150 pickup truck is involved in this morning’s hit and run collision that killed a 50-year-old woman as she walked her dog in the 200 block of Rio Vista Drive in Madison. Chrome grill parts belonging to a 2009 to 2014 F-150 were found in the roadway. The driver fled the scene.
The investigation to this point shows that the victim, who is visually impaired, was walking with her dog on the east side of Rio Vista Drive over a bridge when she was struck. She was found at approximately 6:30 this morning by a passerby and rushed to Skyline Medical Center where she was pronounced deceased. The victim lived at a nearby apartment complex. Officers located her uninjured dog sitting at the front door. Metro Animal Control is now caring for the dog.
No witnesses to the collision have been located thus far. Efforts are continuing to locate and notify the victim’s family.
