Highway patrol looking for suspect involved in fatal hit-and-run

The car stopped, but then fled the scene, possibly turning right or left on Stark Avenue.

Highway patrol has not been able to identify the vehicle or the driver at this time.

Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
