ROANOKE RAPIDS --North Carolina troopers are looking for a suspect in a hit and run that left a Roanoke Rapids woman dead. The Highway Patrol says 47-year-old Sheila Brinson died after being hit by a gold-colored older model car about 1:30 Saturday morning.
Brinson was walking on a road just out the city limits. Troopers say the car was speeding and the driver would have had to cross the center line to hit Brinson.
The car did not stop and there were no skid marks.
Authorities say the suspect vehicle would be missing a mirror on the driver's side and have front end damage.
