Charlotte police look for hit and run driver


CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) -- Charlotte police are looking for the person driving a pickup truck that struck and killed a woman crossing a street.

Thirty-year-old Valerie Michelle Miranda of Charlotte died at the scene about 3 a.m. Sunday.

Police think Miranda was hit by a dark-colored pickup truck with dual rear wheels.

The victim's father, Mike Miranda, says he just wants to know what happened.

Investigators say the woman had just finished a shift at a fast-food restaurant when she was hit.
