CABELL COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- UPDATE 8/15/19 @ 11:36 a.m.
A woman has died after being hit by a vehicle in Culloden early Thursday morning.

Cabell County Sheriff Chuck Zerkle tells WSAZ Roxanne Boardman was killed.

Zerkle says Boardman was walking home from a gas station when she was hit on U.S. 60 near Culloden Elementary School. It happened just before 4 Thursday morning near White Oak Drive.

Investigators believe the driver of a green Ford Mustang -- made in the late 1990s or early 2000s -- veered off the road and hit Boardman. The suspect then drove away, headed towards Putnam County.

Boardman was walking with a man, according to Zerkle, and that man is OK.

The sheriff is asking for the public's help finding the driver.
