They say 53-year-old Jessie Lindsey of New River was struck Friday evening and found badly hurt on 15th Avenue. She was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

"A vehicle bumper was left at the scene following the collision. Detectives determined it belongs to a 2011 Dodge Charger," stated Sgt. Alan Pfohl.
